Microsoft Hyper - V install problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

       I bought Hp laptop which was installed with Windows 8.1 Single Language. I want to run ubuntu OS alongside of Windows. I want to use Hyper V to enable virtualization. But Windows 8.1 single language OS does not have hyper-V option. Even though I updated the OS, I didn't find the hyper-V feature. Specify any remedy to get the hyper-V feature in my windows OS.

    Thanks in advance

  • Go in to the BIOS of your laptop and enable to Hyper-V features; Follow this guide as it's the same for all HP laptops: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and-Software/How-to-enable-Hyper-v-from-BIOS-in-pro-book-430-G1/td-p/3175269

    Also, you need to go to: Control Panel > Program and Features > Turn Windows features on or off. Select all of the Hyper-V check boxes. If they are grayed out, you may need to enable another virtualization feature in the BIOS, listed in the link above.

  • Hello,

    Follow up questions should be asked in the Windows 8.1 Virtualization forum under the Windows 8.1 IT Pro forums.
