• How to install Hyper-V on Windows 10

    Hyper-V is a virtualization system that allows a physical server to become a hypervisor and manages and hosts virtual machines, often called VMs.

    With this technology, you can run and isolate multiple operating systems on almost the same physical machine. Virtualization has completely simplified IT and enterprise resource management.

    The resources of the hypervisor are then shared for different VMs that are economically interesting because it was necessary to think of a physical machine per server before.

    The advantage of HyperV is that it is included in Windows from Windows 8 in Enterprise, Professional, or Education editions. In this article, we will see how to install HyperV on Windows 10.


    Windows 10 Enterprise, Professional or Education

    64-bit processor with second-level address translation (SLAT).

    A processor that supports virtual machine monitor mode extensions (VT-c on Intel processors).

    At least 4 GB of memory.

    Manually activate the Hyper-V role

    Right-click the Windows button and select "Programs and Features".

    Select Enable or disable Windows features.

    Select Hyper-V, and then click OK.

    When the installation is complete, you are prompted to restart your computer.

    With PowerShell

    Open the PowerShell console as an administrator.

    Run the following command:

    Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V -All

    If the command cannot be found, be sure to run PowerShell as an administrator.

    You must restart your computer after the installation is complete.

    Enabling Hyper-V with CMD and DISM

    The Deployment Image Management and Maintenance (DISM) tool helps you configure Windows and Windows images. DSIM allows, among other things, to enable Windows features while the operating system is running.

    To enable the Hyper-V role using DISM:

    Log on to a PowerShell or CMD as an administrator.

    Type the following command:



    DISM / Online / Enable-Feature / All / FeatureName: Microsoft-Hyper-V

    With these three methods, you should be able to easily install Hyper-V on Windows 10.
