Cannot enable Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V on T410

Question: Cannot enable Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V on T410

I upgraded my Lenovo T410 to Windows 10 Pro yesterday and now want to turn on the Hyper-V feature. However, the Hyper-V Hypervisor checkbox in the Windows Features remains greyed out. When I try to enable it, Windows says, "Hyper-V cannot be installed: Virtualization support is disabled in the firmware." I assume this is refering to the BIOS settings. However, in the BIOS (in the Config:CPU section) I have enabled the only two settings related to virtualization:Intel Virtualization Technology: EnabledIntel VT-d Feature: Enabled I ran sysinternals coreinfo which reports:HYPERVISOR - Hypervisor is presentVMX * Supports Intel hardware-assisted virtualizationEPT * Supports Intel Extended Page Tables (SLAT) I am interpreting this to mean that everything is good from the BIOS/chip perspective and that the Hypervisor is simply not installed. The T410 is equipped with the following:Latest BIOS (v1.45) for the T410.Intel iCore 5 M540 cpu4GB RAMIs anyone else having trouble getting Hyper-V to install on Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise? Is there any command line tool that I can use to tell Windows so that it realizes that the chipset supports virtualization? thanks

Preferred Solution: Cannot enable Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V on T410

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Cannot enable Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V on T410

Hello and welcome,

Out of my depth here but have you done a full power-off power-on reboot since enabling VT?

On older BIOSen particularly the VT setting wasn't seen by OS and apps until a full power cycle happened.

Hi,

I just created a virtual machine with Windows XP. Now I'd like to get the sound working in the virtual machine. But I can't see how.

Can anyone help, please?

Answer:Hyper-V, Windows XP, how to enable sound?

Hyper/V Virtual Machine Connection does not support remote audio.

Virtual machines with guest OS Windows 8 or later can use the so called enhanced mode to connect to vm which supports remote audio To get audio in older Windows versions like in your case Windows XP you need to connect to your vm using either Windows Remote Desktop Connection or any third party remote desktop application to get the audio.

Answer:how to Re-enable Hyper Threading under windows xp

did you disable the HT support in BIOS??? Check whether it is enabled. The Win XP should have native support for HT. I am not sure you could easily disable it and reenable it. If the BIOS workaround does not work, we could try to delve into this problem bit deeper.

Since Microsoft did not put Hyper-V on Win7, my company was forced to install Server 2008 R2 on quite a few machines. My sales people need to do demos and in some cases project them so I installed the Intel 8.15.10.2104 driver (meant for Windows 7 but that is all I have). Ironically, they are Microsoft demos.The driver works fine until we launch Hyper-V then blue screen. This happens on all the machines we use, T400's and T410's with Intel or nVidia.Has anyone run into this issue? Was there a fix? I am not much of a hardware crash dump reader but I am trying.Any suggestions would be appreciated.Jack

Hi, I know this is very common for windows 8 users, but I don't know how do I do it? I pressed F2, F10, del, but it seems not working. How do I enable the Hyper-V? I need to go to the BIOS for that but unable to go to BIOS using the keys. I am unable to start my Windows Phone 8 apps development as that  is very much required. Please help. Thanks.  Model C-540. Windows 8 64 bit, 4 GB RAM. i5

Answer:How do I enable Hyper V in C-540

I come to know that Microsoft and Lenovo both are real culprit here. first Microsoft selling a Windows 8 Home edition through "Windows 8 Single language" license. They don't even care to publish the details of the OS version - Pro or Enterprise. Next Lenovo is making the life difficult to run the Windows 8 emulator, First Hyper-V which is not installed in Windows 8 Single language and then Intel virtualization technology is behaving in a weird way. even though it is enable in the BIOS, Hyper-V finds it as a disable mode and asking the user to enable it again. So the main question is "any BIOS update will fix the issue?" Or any patch from Microsoft windows 8 will fix the issue? The  answer is really unknown to me. Only one, who can solve it is Microsoft and Lenovo both. But it will only happen if they are willing to. Developers put a lot of effort for windows 8 development, and windows phone 8. Please help them. I bought this system only for this development purpose and already invested a hard-core earned money of whopping 62K. I will be helpful if any of the community member take a note of this, and put into the lime light of Lenovo core team members. Thanks.Deb

Answer:How to enable Hyper-V platform on T61p?

Which version of Windows are you using? System requirements for Windows 8 reveals that nested paging is now required to run Hyper-V in Windows 8. Running coreinfo.exe will reveal if nested paging (SLAT) is enabled, my guess is no on any of the T or X series Intel processors you may be running. EDIT: I read too quickly. I would assume Win 10 carries with it the same minimum requirements as Win 8.

Hi,

A friend mentioned to me that Intel's HT CPU's actually work like two half-speed P4 CPU's so my 2.6Ghz HT CPU actually runs (in HT mode) at 1.3. He said if you set it to non HT mode you will actually see some performance gains depending upon the task you are doing.

Firstly, is this true and secondly my motherboard has an enable hyper threading option ... is that what I would change to get supposed benefits?

Thanks

May I ask why you would like to enable the Hyper-V Extensible Switch? It is needed only when you have created Hyper-V virtual network switches, which your screenshot clearly shows you have not done. Even then it does not need to be manually enabled, the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager does that for you, disabling everything else in your native physical network adapter's properties, only enabling the Hyper-V Extensible Switch.

Screenshots from my PC showing how the properties are set when an external virtual switch has been correctly set up. Notice that these changes have been automatically made by the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager, I have had no need to edit the properties manually.

You can't run hyper-v (any version) inside a VM so neither would work,

Hello,I've been struggling with this for a few days and really haven't come across anything that deals with this specific problem. I am trying to get my virtual machine to play sound through my computer speakers using enhanced session mode. I have checked the boxes to allow enhanced session mode in hyper-v settings>server and hyper-v settings>user. When I start my virtual machine up, everything I've read tells me I should get some sort of dialog box allowing me to adjust display settings and local resources. I have yet to see this box. Also, when I go to the toolbar at the top of the VM and click view, "Enhanced session" is grayed out and I can't click on it, in case this provides any clues. I'm trying to figure out how I can enable use of local resources, or whatever it is that I need to do to use my speakers etc.My physical computer uses Windows 10 Pro and my VM uses Windows 7 Pro.

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for checking the query, this is with regards to a setup for ATA 1.8, where most of the DCs are Virtual and around 20 Hyper-V hosts each having 1-2 DCs and other VMs for other functions, under normal conditions either you could go with approach
1 or 2 as below
1. Install  ATA lightweight Gateway on each DC - No approved.
2. Install ATA Gateway on Each Hyper-V host to receive Mirrored traffic from DCs on that Hyper-V host -
No feasible
But we need to check the possibility of approach 3, based on the article below

3. DCs on Different Hyper-V hosts to mirror traffic to ATA Gateway(s) on Different Hyper-v Host(s)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/advanced-threat-analytics/configure-port-mirroring#supported-port-mirroring-options



ATA Gateway
Domain Controller
                           Considerations






Virtual
               Virtual on different hosts


Make sure your virtual switch supports this scenario.




So the bottom line is Does Hyper-V allow or can it be configure to sent the Mirrored Traffic from a VM to a VM on another Host, the configuration could involve power shell.
As per the below article it can capture traffic from Physical machine if port mirroring is configured to the Hyper-V host.

The Hyper-V Manager was configured OK but when I tried to start a VM I created (in this case Windows Server 2016 TP4 since I want to explore the new nested Hyper-V feature) I got the message that the Hyperrvisor was not running. Indeed when I created the services admin tool the HV was not running although it was set to staRt automatic. I could not start it - failed immediately. Most annoying I could not remove the Hyper-V feature. Windows started the removal process after rebooting but then rolled the changes back because it could not apply them. I restored Windows 10 from a recent image I created using AOEMI Backupper. The restore worked flawlessly and instead of trying to remove Hyper-V I've disabled all its processes. Now I can install VMware Workstation and Virtualbox but I really wanted to try Hyper-V

Answer:How To Install Emulator And Hyper V - Hyper V Won't Install Windows 10

Simple: you have Windows 10 Home edition, it has no Hyper-V. Hyper-V is only available in Pro, Education and Enterprise editions. There's no way you can run Windows Phone emulators because the only way to run them is Hyper-V, which you don't have because of your chosen edition.

You can use Windows 10 Home edition to connect to Hyper-V virtual machines on Pro, Education and Enterprise editions, therefore even the Home edition has parts of Hyper-V to offer this so called Virtual Machine Connection to another Hyper-V server.

In screenshot, green highlight shows the parts of Hyper-V you have in Home edition. They allow you to to connect to so called Hyper-V servers (Windows 10 Pro, Education, Enterprise) and use virtual machines like for instance Windows Phone emulators installed on them over the network.

The parts required for a computer to act as Hyper-V server for virtual machines is highlighted red. That's the parts your Home edition is missing.

Win 8.1
The symptom is 2 adapters in Device Manager that I can't remove:

From time to time, this problem interferes with the Ethernet card on the PC, and I lose all connectivity for the host OS.  So I really need to fix this.  I've currently recovered connectivity by deleting my VM and the virtual switch in Hyper-V
manager, but I'd like to resolve this problem properly by eliminating these 'unattached' adapters.
I've read many posts and still am not convinced I know which steps to take.  Many of the posts seem a little dated, so I'm concerned I'll create additional problems if I follow old stuff.  Here are a few of the solutions I've seen on the boards:
1) edit the registry, up to 50 times.  This doesn't sound like a great idea but if that's what it takes...

2) remove the adapter in something called the Administrative Website.  I don't really know what that is.  Is that a current piece of software for use with Hyper-V on Win 8+?  I have been using the Hyper-V manager.  Is that not good

I had XP mode in Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits with some software that not runs on 64 bits. When I made that free upgrade, I got Windows 10 Pro 64 bits, but the XP mode with all that software disappeared. I read that I can setup Hyper-V and install XP inside it. I must turn on Hyper-V feature before I can create virtual machines, no problem with this. But, what really means "virtual switch"? What I want is something like I had with XP mode in Windows 7 -> I was able to exchange files between Windows 7 and XP mode, like open and save files on any folder on the HD. That is all I need. I not want to access internet or any other computer in the house from inside the Hyper-V. So, do I need this "virtual switch"? If yes, what would be the best option: external, internal or private network?

Install Hyper-V and install XP inside a virtual system. There should be an option for host only networking.

I tried to install the preview as a virtual machine and everything went fine until after a reboot following the download and installation of the updates. Both 8.1 & 10 locked up with a strange crackling noise through the speakers every few seconds. One good thing about a virtual machine, it is easy to remove.

It installed quick on my 9 year old system, I am posting from it right now. The only problem I have encountered is an unknown device. I just need to boot up 8.1 and find out what that device is.

I apologize if there is a separate thread for Hyper-V running on Windows 8.1 vs this Server thread.  Couldn't find one specific to Hyper-V on Windows 8.1.
We have had for months now 3 Windows 8.1 workstations running Hyper-V with Windows 7 guest OS's. These guest were used to support clients that required a rather tight VPN connection. Suddenly last week all 3 machines has the same issue.
The guest no longer have internet connectivity.  One workstation has Broadcom NIC other 2 have Intel.  It's as if some Windows patch did something that caused the Virtual Switch to stop working.
Have blown away the VM's, dropped the Virtual Switch.  Ran updates.  Recreated the Virtual Switch and built new VM.  Still same condition.
The host to continues to connect to network and internet without issue.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There is a Win8 forum here (for future ref)

Is this in a corporate environment?  If so, were any changes made to the switches?  I've seen environments where the switch is locked down to only allow one MAC/IP per port, which knocks off any VMs.
Are you getting any DHCP information? Can you assign a static IP and get connectivity?

Hi everybody,


I am running a Windows 2012 Core server as host OS with Microsoft Hyper-V on an Intel Xeon server.


Because of a legacy application, I am running an old Windows XP machine, with all service packs and hotfixes installed.  Also Hyper-V integration services are running. Everything is running smoothly. Since Windows XP is not supported anymore, I want
to upgrade this Windows XP machine to Vista. For that, I do have a DVD with Vista Business and SP1, including a .valid license. Unfortunately I cannot install this legacy application on Windows Vista for some reason, but that's not the case.
After starting the upgrade van Windows Vista, the machine is really really slow. But that's okay, in the meantime I can grab a coffee (or two). The problems arise when the upgrade is completed. After the final reboot, an error message appears after the Windows
Vista logo (translated poorly from Dutch to English):

Using the Windows Vista DVD (ISO image) I was able to launch a command prompt to see what's wrong. The file, vmstorfl.sys, is in place, so that's not the issue. A chkdsk /f doesn't solve the issue.

After reading goor comments regarding the performance I decided to take this laptop too. Now I find out that the external VGA/HDMI connectors and Docking-Station HDMI/DVI connectors do not work without the NVidia driver installed. When I enable the Optimus mode in the BIOS and install the NVidia Optimus driver again my Windows 8 and Windows 2008 R2 crashes with a BSOD. After some reading in forums I find that this graphics chip combination the way Lenovo implemented this is not Hyper-V compatible???? Is/can that be true?? You can't sell such a power-house and then make it incompatible with virtualisation while wanting to use the external display connectors!! Is this a known issue and will it be solved in a new BIOS and/or driverset? Thanks in advance for your answer / help. rgds, Eric

Answer:How to install Windows 10 on Hyper-V VM?

You want to convert the Home PC to a VM or just move the license? In either case you'll need a transferable license. If it is OEM most likely will not work.

The simplest would be to download a Windows 10 ISO from Tech Bench and just install it in VM using the ISO file (not a USB) as the installation media. The ISO contains both home and pro and you'll be prompted which you want to use when you install. You can activate it with your 10 Home key.

If you want to convert the home PC to a VM (keeping all software and so on) you can use Disk2vhd. You can then connect this VHD to a new VM and start it up. Most likely that will work (if not you may have to sysprep it first). It will install the drivers it needs when it starts. As the hardware will have changed you'll need to activate it with your home key.

For those unaware, you can now resize your Hyper-V windows "on the fly" (enhanced mode at least) . Previously, you had to do it via config files before you started vm up.

Now you do not have to scroll or go to fullscreen mode to get to task bar. Makes it much better experience now.

I'm trying to boot it as a Virtual on a 64 bit Windows 7 SP1 6.1.7601 HP Pavilion g6 laptop running on Intel Core i3-2350M 2.30 GHz processor with 6Gb of RAM and it hangs with a black screen on the first try and when rebooted in Safe Mode it gets to Loaded: \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys, announces Please wait . . . and then nothing further happens.

I tried using DISM.exe version 6.1.7600.16385 to load the laptops drivers into the VHD by mounting the VHD using disk management with the command:
DISM.exe /Image:g: /Add-Driver /Driver:c:\windows\inf /Recurse but this gets me an error 50, indicating an unsupported command against a Vista SP1 or Server 2008 target image. In the DISM log an error "Failed validating command line" is shown. The host is mysteriously shown in the log as 6.1.7601 running amd64 with 4 processors. Why would Intel Core i3 show up as amd? The Hyper V host on which the VHD was created is running is running on an Intel Xeon E5620 processor. Not that this explains why /Add-Driver is unsupported in DISM.

Answer:No Audio In Hyper V Windows 7

Only way to get audio on a Windows 7 Hyper-V vm is to connect to it using Remote Desktop Connection (see tutorial).

You can connect to and use Hyper-V virtual machines using either normal mode called Virtual Machine Connection, or using Enhanced Mode. Enhanced Mode supports audio but unfortunately it is only available if guest OS on vm is Windows 8 or later. Virtual Machine Connection does not support audio, in other words to get audio in Windows 7 or older versions you need to use RDC to connect to them.

Hyper-V on Windows 10 offers new and changed functionality. You can now run Windows PowerShell commands inside a virtual machine from the host operating system. There are no network or firewall requirements or special configuration.
Improvements include: Alternate credentials supportDown-level managementUpdated management protocolAnd more.

If there is a tutorial already, I cannot find it here as most of the hyper-V references are about getting Hyper-V working.

I have:
- Physical Notebook running Windows 10 Home (with key of course)
- Physical Notebook running Window 10 Edu (with key of course)
- Hyper-V installed on the Windows 10 Edu
- USB for Windows 10 Pro (with key of course)
- USB for Windows 10 Edu (iwth key of course)
- ISO for Windows 10 Pro
- Backups and Repair discs on DVD for the notebooks

I don't have:
- a Win 10 Home ISO from the OEM because it's a hidden partition. Thus, I have the above (useless) Win 10 USB (Home version)

I want:
to move my Windows 10 Home to a VM on the Windows 10 Edu PC so I can trash (er, recycle) the old notebook.

I cannot seem to get the install working for various reasons:
- The VM does not seem to support accessing the USB drives!?
- The Recovery Disk formats the virtual hard drive, but does not offer an option for actually installing Windows
- The Repair disc from the backup is not bootable
- I considered purchasing some third party application but would like to know they are worth the money. Turns out Acronis trials do not support recovering / installing windows.
- Procedures I have found on other sites suggest making the USB work by taking it offline, but that is not an offered option on my disk management utility
- Cannot find where to buy a Win 10 DVD (only USBs)

Answer:How to install Windows 10 on Hyper-V VM?

You want to convert the Home PC to a VM or just move the license? In either case you'll need a transferable license. If it is OEM most likely will not work.

The simplest would be to download a Windows 10 ISO from Tech Bench and just install it in VM using the ISO file (not a USB) as the installation media. The ISO contains both home and pro and you'll be prompted which you want to use when you install. You can activate it with your 10 Home key.

If you want to convert the home PC to a VM (keeping all software and so on) you can use Disk2vhd. You can then connect this VHD to a new VM and start it up. Most likely that will work (if not you may have to sysprep it first). It will install the drivers it needs when it starts. As the hardware will have changed you'll need to activate it with your home key.

Recently i reinstalled my windows several times.
And finaly i think i got my windows 7 set up once for good
and then i discovered that windows 7 only sees 4 cores in stead of 8 (earlier installations) (4 cores and 4 as a resault of hyper-threading)
now i did check my bios and i could see that hyper-threading is enabled.
Does anyone have an idea how to get hyper-threading active in windows ?

Hmm i just find out that under device manager and when i double click on CPU it does show 8 processors, but then why is it showing only 4 in task manager ?

Hi everybody. I tried reading through the topics and didn't really find anything that has helped. If I'm posting a topic that has been posted I apologize for overlooking it. However, here is my situation.

I am running Windows 10 ( 64 bit) and have made a virtual machine under hyper-v and using windows 7 ultimate sp1. I have been unsuccessful in adding new audio hardware. When I go to the control panel in win 7 it says "no audio device found." I have no idea how to add audio hardware to the win 7. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:No Audio In Hyper V Windows 7

Only way to get audio on a Windows 7 Hyper-V vm is to connect to it using Remote Desktop Connection (see tutorial).

You can connect to and use Hyper-V virtual machines using either normal mode called Virtual Machine Connection, or using Enhanced Mode. Enhanced Mode supports audio but unfortunately it is only available if guest OS on vm is Windows 8 or later. Virtual Machine Connection does not support audio, in other words to get audio in Windows 7 or older versions you need to use RDC to connect to them.

Well, I tried to use it a while back and found that my Core 2 Duo E8400 didn't support SLAT (secondary level address translation), therefore I wasn't able to put it through it's paces.

I got the parts for a new computer at work and upgraded to a Core i7-3770 and finally got a chance to get hyper-V setup today. While it's nice that it is included by default with Windows, and it does have snapshot ability (nice plus over the free VMWare product), it's still a real PITA to work with Linux boxes on this thing. Not only did I have to download the Linux connectivity kit and then force an RPM install with a --nodeps switch, but I had to build the configuration files for the networking as well.

Performance is pretty solid, but even though MS touts this as a type 1 hypervisor, it didn't really feel any speedier than VMWare Workstation 8. I find that the VMWare Workstation interface is much nicer than the Hyper-V manager that this product comes with by default.

So, it's a good product and for primary Windows users, it should suffice and work great. For Linux users, I would stick with VMWare or VirtualBox at this time.

Answer:Hyper-V on Windows 8 client

Now that you mentioned this:
I also tried that on my dual core (t7500) which has VT-x but no SLAT , good that my i5 has both .

Checking if your CPU has SLAT:
How to Check if Your CPU Supports Second Level Address Translation (SLAT) - How-To Geek

Speed between VBox, VMware and Hyper-V is not noticeable always, I think it depends what application is running at the moment in the VM.

The fact Hyper-V is a type 1 hypervisor, makes the next test interesting: it should win the "overhead benchamark on some cpu intensive apps" contest, but I can be wrong about this.

VMware Player vs VirtualBox vs Hyper-V

I'm curious about the overhead on some applications. For instance I tested Red Alert 2 YR in a VM (weird example?) and it's known to fully use 1 single core of the CPU on a host. The test was made using a xp sp3 vm, 1cpu + 1024mb ram all on a Win7 x64 host:
-VBox 4.2 rc4 uses 25% of the quad core (SINGLE CORE XP VM) => that's 1 core used on the host
-VMPlayer 5 uses 50% of the same cpu (SINGLE CORE XP VM) => that's 2 cores used on the host
-Hyper-V not yet tested

Note that hardware virtualization was on for all tested examples above. PAE (physical address extension) is by default on in case of VMware and VBox can turn this on or off (no big deal in performance gain in the tested case).

So it means that on some (cpu intensive) applications, although the VM is assigned to use 1 core in the guest (in case of VMware), it uses 2 cores in the host, meaning that 1 co... Read more

I am new to Gen2 Hyper-V and so far I simply can't use it, because I am unable to install any (supported) guest OS from an ISO ...

So far I tried that on:
1. my HP Z230/i4770 workstation (Secure Boot disabled) host running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 (with Hyper-V feature enabled), can't boot any VM with supported OS ISO.

2. my home desktop/i3770K (secure Boot enabled) host running Windows 8.1 Pro x64, same result, error during VM boot from ISO, quoted below.

Synthetic SCSI controller (instance blah blah) Failed to Power on with Error 'The version does not support this version of file format'



Gen1 guests of course work perfectly fine with those ISOs, because emulated DVD IDE picks up the official Enterprise Evaluation ISO of either Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise, perfectly fine and all works OK in Legacy boot mode.
When I create a new guest and select Gen2, then no matter if I check or uncheck the Secure Boot in virtual Boot Order options for the guest (while setting the SCSI DVD at top of course), it simply doesn't work, always same error. I tried first connecting
to VM to see if it prompts for key press, but it doesn't, the error is instant on Power on when (supported) ISO image is selected to be booted.


I verified that both of official Enterprise Evaluation ISO's of either WS2012r2 and W8.1x64 are bootable in both the UEFI mode (Secure Boot enabled) and Legacy BIOS mode using a physical computer.

When installing Win 10 as a guest in Hyper-V on a laptop with an OEM licensed Windows 8.1, what key do I use? Does it matter?
Do I bypass the key and activate later? Or do I use the key that my 8.1 host system uses?
I'm concerned that if I use the 8.1 key, that OS will no longer validate and I might be forced to 10 on the host. I just want to preview and test Win 10 before making a permanent upgrade.

Answer:What product key to use when installing Windows 10 as guest on Hyper-V on Windows 8.1?

You have posted to a technical Windows Server/Hyper-V forum.  There is a separate forum for virtualization on Windows 10 - https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/home?forum=win10itprovirt.  If you were asking about Windows
Server activation, you would contact your OEM and ask them for an activation key for the guests.  Client licensing differs from server licensing, but you should still most likely contact your OEM and ask them.  One of the conditions of an OEM
license contract is that the OEM takes on primary support responsibility for the product they are selling.

Answer:Configuring sound with Windows 98 and XP on Hyper-V.

Virtual PC 2007 is old and could be support for newer hardware isn't there. Win98 didn't have as much in the way of drivers for various devices whether on the motherboard or as add-ins, nearly always needed driver software that accompanied the devices.

Hyper-V was enabled while installing the Visual Studio Android emulator, which I no longer need. As it turns out, Hyper-V doesn't work well with Virtualbox (see https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/15268) and must be removed.

As far as I know, the only way to remove it is "Turn Windows Feature On or Off" -> deselect "Hyper-V" and hit OK, which results in the following message.
(We couldn't complete the features \ Undoing changes \ Don't turn off your computer)

I think I opened Hyper-V all of one time before deciding not to use it. The only changes I've made since are deleting the only VM, which was installed by VS, and disabling the Virtual Ethernet Adapters (they will no longer enable).

I successfully disabled IE11 as a test, which worked flawlessly.

I don't have any restore points to backup from and will probably resort to reinstalling Windows (second time since the 2 months I bought this) if I don't find anything.

I'm teaching myself Hyper-V as an alternative to VMWare. I activated Hyper-V on Windows 8.1 and used it to create a Windows 10 virtual machine. So far, so good but I think I'm 'missing' something.

My Windows 10 virtual machine is apparently considered a remote session, and this is causing me trouble. For example: I can't change my display settings, because "The display settings can't be changed from a remote session." Also, for a while I wasn't able to log in to my Microsoft Account because 'server access from a remote session has not been enabled' (I can't remember the exact wording) although this problem seems to have gone away on its own.

Why is my virtual machine considered a remote session, and how can I change it to be a regular virtual machine, like I had with VMWare?

UGH!

On an off topic side note, can VMware's vmdx file be converted into vhd so Windows can mount it and possibly boot from it?

Thanks!

Shoot! Nevermind, I solved my issue.

So I quickly restarted and enabled any and every virtualization related option in BIOS-which was like only two-and quickly booted into the Windows 8 and now Windows detects hardware virtualization and now Hyper-V is enabled! YAY!

Hopefully this helps someone.....

It seems that Windows 10 does not behave nicely in a Hyper-V virtual machine, also running on Windows 10.

My laptop has plenty of memory and is running Windows 10 build 10586.63.

Normally I configure a new VM with dynamic memory enabled, because I saw no reason why not. Now I found one: Windows 10 as client OS does not like that. All my Windows 10 VM's reported only about 1.5 GB usable with 4 GB configured. Not surprisingly, they were all dead slow.

When I disabled dynamic memory in the settings, the problem went away.

This may severely limit the number of VM's you can be running simultanously!

Bart

Answer:Windows 10 and Hyper-V dynamic memory

Of course a Hyper-V vm becomes slower if you use dynamic memory with default settings. The Hyper-V will be constantly monitoring the demand and assign the required RAM to the vm.

For the dynamic memory to work you need to assign enough startup memory (#1 in screenshot below), increase the the memory buffer (#2) and memory weight (#3):


A Windows 10 virtual machine needs surprisingly little RAM to function well. Here in the screenshot the memory usage of a Windows 10 vm otherwise idle at the moment, only running Macrium to create a system image. Memory demand only 522 MB but because I have assigned a 35% buffer, it's using 768 MB of the assigned maximum 8 GB:


The buffer is important: When using dynamic memory and the demand suddenly increases for example due a resource heavy application being launched, it takes time for Hyper-V to assign more RAM to the vm. The bigger the buffer, the better the vm reacts to increased demand.

Dynamic memory should only be used when it really is needed, for instance when it is important to have multiple virtual machines running at the same time. Dynamic memory should not be used when installing Windows, it can make the time needed for installation somewhat longer.

Generally speaking a Windows 10 vm with 2 GB of static RAM assigned works faster than the same vm with 512 MB to 4 GB dynamic RAM.

I am trying to upgrade a PC to a new Desktop running windows 10 pro, that was the easy part. All the other old systems are running Windows XP and are connected to a central computer running Windows 2003 server. The software we use wont run on windows 10 so I am using Hyper V on the Windows 10 PC to emulate XP to connect to the server and be able to use the software for the business.

Hyper V aside I can not see the network I am trying to connect to from the regular Win 10 drives and devices list either, I am assuming it is because Server 2003 can not see Win 10, but I have been fooled before.

So I am running out of ideas on how to solve this without re inventing the wheel, any suggestions would be great, hoping there is a simple solution that I have not banged my head against the wall lon enough to notice.

Hi Megaman, welcome to Ten Forums.

Windows XP guest in Hyper-V cannot use the normal virtual network adapter, it needs a so called legacy adapter instead. See Part Five: Create a legacy Windows virtual machine (Windows Vista or earlier) in this tutorial to fix your issue: Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10

Remove the current NIC (instructions with screenshot in tutorial step 5.4), add a legacy NIC (step 5.5), connect legacy NIC to your external Realtek switch (step 5.6).

That's it, your Windows XP guest should now have network and Internet access.

Hi,
after I installed the Hyper-V Feature on my Windows 8 RTM machine, my plan was to install a Win7 virtual machine via network-install.
The problem is after configuring the virtual switch, my host-system has no connection to the network anymore and the network-boot isn't possible too.
After configuring the virtual switch a new network adapter appears in the networkadapter management. The physical adapter has no properties activated except the virtual switch-property. The new adapter is configurerd like the old physical adapter. The adapter
is configured to use DHCP. Even changing it to a static IP doesn't change anything. There are also no changes (for the guest-machine) if I disable the shared use of the network-card in the virtual switch management.
If I use my WLAN-Adapter instead of my Ethernet-Adapter it is the same except there is a network bridge in the networkadapter management more compared to my Ethernet-Adapter (so there are two more adapters).
Configuring the virtual switch with my UMTS-Card is like the Ethernet-Card.
The Ethernet-Driver is updated to the newest driver by Microsoft.
Has anyone an idea what is happening there and how to solve that issue?

However, when I try to network boot using a physical hardware (a laptop), boot process works just fine, everything is as expected.

It seems that Windows 10 does not behave nicely in a Hyper-V virtual machine, also running on Windows 10.

My laptop has plenty of memory and is running Windows 10 build 10586.63.

Normally I configure a new VM with dynamic memory enabled, because I saw no reason why not. Now I found one: Windows 10 as client OS does not like that. All my Windows 10 VM's reported only about 1.5 GB usable with 4 GB configured. Not surprisingly, they were all dead slow.

When I disabled dynamic memory in the settings, the problem went away.

This may severely limit the number of VM's you can be running simultanously!

Answer:Windows 10 and Hyper-V dynamic memory

Of course a Hyper-V vm becomes slower if you use dynamic memory with default settings. The Hyper-V will be constantly monitoring the demand and assign the required RAM to the vm.

For the dynamic memory to work you need to assign enough startup memory (#1 in screenshot below), increase the the memory buffer (#2) and memory weight (#3):


A Windows 10 virtual machine needs surprisingly little RAM to function well. Here in the screenshot the memory usage of a Windows 10 vm otherwise idle at the moment, only running Macrium to create a system image. Memory demand only 522 MB but because I have assigned a 35% buffer, it's using 768 MB of the assigned maximum 8 GB:


The buffer is important: When using dynamic memory and the demand suddenly increases for example due a resource heavy application being launched, it takes time for Hyper-V to assign more RAM to the vm. The bigger the buffer, the better the vm reacts to increased demand.

Dynamic memory should only be used when it really is needed, for instance when it is important to have multiple virtual machines running at the same time. Dynamic memory should not be used when installing Windows, it can make the time needed for installation somewhat longer.

Generally speaking a Windows 10 vm with 2 GB of static RAM assigned works faster than the same vm with 512 MB to 4 GB dynamic RAM.

Very sad, but expected; I Install Windows 8 on a PC with 32 GB of RAM and enable Hyper-V on it to make other OS running in VM, but I can't add it as a host in SCVMM, so I can't migrate VM from this PC to other VM hosts.

As I said expected. Sad because I will have install the SCVMM Admin Console on it and also Remote Desktop Connection Manager and use it in my lab and it will not consume more electricity and produce more heat than a Hyper-V server.

Hyper-V was enabled while installing the Visual Studio Android emulator, which I no longer need. As it turns out, Hyper-V doesn't work well with Virtualbox (see https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/15268) and must be removed.

As far as I know, the only way to remove it is "Turn Windows Feature On or Off" -> deselect "Hyper-V" and hit OK, which results in the following message.
(We couldn't complete the features \ Undoing changes \ Don't turn off your computer)

I think I opened Hyper-V all of one time before deciding not to use it. The only changes I've made since are deleting the only VM, which was installed by VS, and disabling the Virtual Ethernet Adapters (they will no longer enable).

I successfully disabled IE11 as a test, which worked flawlessly.

I don't have any restore points to backup from and will probably resort to reinstalling Windows (second time since the 2 months I bought this) if I don't find anything.

Hey guys,

This is the first time using the forum so I apologize if this has been put in the incorrect place. My brother recently installed Hyper V Server 2012 r2, which boots up everytime I start my laptop. I just want help in how to completely remove the software and help get back my Windows 8. Neither me or him know how to get back to windows 8.

Thanks in advance guys.

Well, you must have a bootable Windows 8 DVD or USB. Go to the BIOS settings, select to have the DVD or USB device as first device. Then it should say "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." if you have a DVD or it will show the OEM or Windows logo directly (USB). When you are prompted for the installation type, choose Custom. Make sure you have backed up your files. Delete every partition of Disk 0 and then choose the Unallocated Space to install.

I hope this helps you.
