Re: VM Server
what he said:
you can have windows 10, and just add the hypervisor role, or install vmware desktop, or virtual box, qemu (windows version) etc. and run virtual machines as guests on your regular OS, this a type 2 hyper visor.
you could dual boot your regular OS with windows core edition, and have a type 1 (bare metal) hyper visor, this is pretty handy for not having resources used up by a desktop OS, allowing more resources for your VMs, but you won't have a desktop at all. and you need a second workstation to be able to connect you your type 1 hyper visor in order to provision machines on it...
long story short, dual booting for a type 1 hyper visor probably isn't a great idea, the fact that you want a usable OS suggests that you need one, but want to have a competent hyper visor as well. these won't fit well on the same machine.
