Windows 8.1 Pro Crashes When Enabling Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I bought a new HP Envy Desktop specifically for Windows Phone Development and ironically I can't get Hyper-V running. The machine just hangs on startup and eventually Windows 8.1 Pro x64 just crashes after multiple attempts after enabling Hyper-V in Windows Programs/Features.  It's a Intel i5 with 12GB of RAM and virtualization is enabled in the BIOS.  I've read through multiple threads over the last several days and tried the following:

    - Updating all local drivers and Windows updates

    - Disabling Bluetooth

    - Uninstalling Avira AV

    - Someone also suggested disabling USB 3.0 support but I don't see an option to do this in my BIOS.

    I've wasted a lot of time on this and I would really appreciate any help.
