Unable to install Hyper-V feature under Windows 8

    Question

  • Hi,

     

    I am trying to install the Hyper-V feature under Windows 8 but it keeps on failing. I am able to select the feature in the configuration manager. After completing this a reboot is required. Upon booting Windows shows a message that it is configuring the feature and shows the progress in %. When 100% is reached is shows the message: Failure configuring windows features and it performs a roll back and reboots.

    Regards,

  • this has nothing to do with the CPU. If the CPU doesn't support SLAT, the checkbox is grayed out

  • Hi Suresh Matada,

    Please make sure your computer can meet the Hyper-V’s requirements firstly. Hyper-V requires a 64-bit system that has Second Level Address Translation (SLAT). What’s more, 4 GB of RAM is required.

    For your information, please review this article Client Hyper-V to learn more about the requirements, usage scenarios, and installation procedures for Client Hyper-V:

    • Virtualization (VTx) and DEP has been enable in the bios.
    • Tried with command : dism /Online /enable-feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V /All.

    Still getting same error.

  • Upload the folder C:\Windows\Logs\CBS (compressed as zip) to your SkyDrive and post a link here.

  • If you're using an Intel processor, run the Intel processor identification tool and see if the necessary features are present: http://www.intel.com/support/processors/tools/piu/sb/CS-014921.htm

    In their wisdom, Intel made certain features available in some models/steps of a processor but not in others, so there's no real way to tell without running the utility. On the same model laptops, mine won't run Hyper-V, but other people's will, because my processor was an earlier step of the same model as theirs.

  • Can you run systeminfo.exe and show us the output shown under  the header "Hyper-V Requirements"?

  • Just curious... is Hyper-V enabled in the BIOS?

    Some BIOS systems have that turned off by default.

  • Did you already try this? Uninstall Hyper-V, reboot, run the following dism commands, reboot, Install Hyper-V

    dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
