Removing yes/no prompt from hyper-v installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have been trying to make a PowerShell script to enable Microsoft Hyper V Hypervisor.

    The script is working as intended, but everytime I run the script i get asked if i want to restart the computer.

    Is there any way i can add to the script so that it auto-replies yes to the restart prompt?

    Here is the script i have so far:

    Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V-Hypervisor -all

  • If you do not want a restart after the installation just add the -NoRestart parameter. If you would like to restart after the installation you can do something like this:

    Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V-Hypervisor -All -NoRestart; Restart-Computer

    I've tried, and it worked.

  • No sure if you can use the -Confirm parameter for this but it might be worth adding -Confirm:TRUE

    You could also add another part to the script that restarts the computer after a little bit of time.
