2008R2 host sound does not work when Hyper-V role installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a dell Studio laptop with Windows 2008 R2 installed. The sound card and drivers work fine normally but when I install the Hyper-V role, the sound becomes totally unusable and crackly.

    Any thoughts - it seems as if Hyper-V changes the driver somehow as when I remove the role all is OK again.

  • Hi,


    I have seems this issue in this forum before, if you want to resolve the issue, the answer is you need a slat enabled processor such as a core i5 or i7.


    By the way, it seems that the sound problem is fixed in Win2008 R2 SP1 Beta 



    Best Regards,
