    I ran the batch enabled virtualization in my bios settings but when I check in my task manager, virtualization is still disabled. Also when I check in optional features, hyper v platform and hyper v hypervisor is grayed out saying “virtualization support is disabled in the firmware”.

      You should enable virtualization from the system BIOS otherwise Hyper-V will not work.

    Thanks a lot! I have a doubt, sir. This is not regarding the hyper V installation but when I try to install CentOS7 on VM it shows that boot error and reboot by choosing a proper option. Can you please tell me a solution for this?

    Hi Usman, I installed this & it worked for me. But I am not able to uninstall it using the command that you pasted above. It only disables hyper v but I would like to uninstall it from my system. Any help would be appreciated.

      Don’t worry about it. When the next windows feature upgrade happens it will disappear.

    Thank You! This is the only Windows Pro feature I use and I could NOT justify the additional $99 to upgrade for ability to use one application.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the .bat file.

    I can’t seem to find Hyper-V.
    I’ve checked if it’s enabled, I ran the .bat as Adminstrator and even checked in the start menu. Can you please tell me where it is located?

    Thanks, but it don´t works for my Win 10 2004:
    1. The featurename was changed from “Microsoft-Hyper-V” to “HypervisorPlatform” and “VirtualMachinePlatform”, yep two features.

    2. Once I enabled this two features and restart, I can view they are activated in the optionalfeatures, but I don’t find the hyper-v manager or equivalet in administrative tools or searching in windows search bar.

    I use es-mx win10 version, if someone has a win10 2004 in another idiom, please test and comment.

    Great work Usman, congratulations. I confess I was a little concerned about running a third party batch file, but it worked perfectly on my Windows 10 Home edition. However, I found that I have now another problem as Hyper-V is not working due to other(s) virtualization application(s) and I have to find them and discover how to disable them (the following message appers: “A hypervisor has been detected. Features required for Hyper-V will not be displayed”).

      The message you mentioned means that Hyper-V is enabled on your computer. It should work fine. Please try to open Hyper-V from Start Menu –> Administrative Tools.

    Thank you very much! It worked. I would just add to others, that first you need
    to close your Visual Studio if it is open. Otherwise that Bat file will run in an infinite loop.

          it’s not a loop, check hyper-v.txt as a reference, all you need to do is to wait. For those hesitating about the .bat file, you can edit it and check those codes.

    Great tutorial.
    Anyone know how to add users to Hyper-V Administrators group (to not need admin privileges) to run V-machines on Windows 10 Home then? (Since windows 10 have no typical group management console).

      Hyper-V takes some resources for running smoothly. If you are low on resources, turning on Hyper-V will not be well advised.

      Please open the command prompt with administrative privileges and run the following command:
      DISM /Online /Disable-Feature /All /FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V

      This will remove all the installed features related to Hyper-V from your computer.

    Great share since I use wsl2 to run ubuntu on windows 10 home, vmmem require less resources of ram compared to non activated Hyper-V, it is only 10% required to run since activating it.
    Thanks a lot for your work… :)

    Genial, funciona, aun no instalo ninguna maquina, pero si se instalo el Hyper-V
    Busque en muchos lados la forma de instalar el Hyper en Windows 10 Home y no encontre solution por ningun lado.
    Gracias por el dato.

    Espero que cuando instale las Virtuales funcionen igual que en Windows 10 Enterprise

    (Great, it works, I still didn’t install any machine, but if I install the Hyper-V
    I looked for many ways for installing Hyper in Windows 10 Home and I found no solution anywhere.
    Thanks for the information.

    I hope that when you install the Virtual machines they will work the same as in Windows 10 Enterprise)
