    1. Please make sure you installed a 64bit version of Windows Server 2008.
          
    2. Please make sure your Windows Installation supports the Hyper-V role.
      When you perform the following command:
          
           wmic OS get OperatingSystemSKU

          
      It should return: 12, 13 or 14.
          
    3. Please make sure your hardware supports the Hyper-V role.
      If you have a box you think is suitable download and run SecurAble, a tool by Gibson Research Corporation. It will not only show whether your hardware meets the requirements, but also whether Hardware Assisted Virtualization and Hardware-enforced DEP are enabled in BIOS.

  •  Hi,

    On the Windows 2008 installation that shows no, are you using Hyper-V or something else for virtualization? Hyper-V requires Hardware Assisted Virtualization, but Virtual Server doesn't.

    Correct, if it shows no and is correct, then Hyper-V won't run.

  • Thanks Sander

    With this command

    wmic OS get OperatingSystemSKU

    I got
    14

    In a machine which is installed with Windows 2008 i used secureable. It should Virtualization as NO but i am able to install Vm's in that machine and use normally.

    With this tool it shows NO does that mean i caanot enable Hyper-V in a Server core environment?

  • Its also case sensitive...

    "start /w ocsetup microsoft-hyper-v" will produce the same error without caps of course.
