  1. Can't disable Hyper-V


    I set up WSL2 and I started getting "Internal power error" BSODs and also system freezes without BSODs when I woke my laptop from sleep or hibernate.

    I uninstalled Ubuntu and turned off WSL in Windows Features, but I still get the BSODs.

    I ran System Info and found that a hypervisor had been detected, even though Hyper-V is disabled according to Windows Features. This led me to guess that Hyper-V is the culprit for the BSODs.

    I read somewhere that if I disabled secure boot and restarted the machine a couple of times, the discrepancy between what Windows Features says and what is actually happening would fix itself and the hypervisor would be turned off. But this didn't work.

    I have read about various commands I can enter at an elevated prompt to properly shut down the hypervisor, but none of those have worked.

    How can I properly disable Hyper-V?

    I also get a Cmd window which opens when I boot the machine with the command start /min wsl genie -i and a pop-up which says "Windows cannot find wsl. Make sure you have typed the name correctly, then try again."
    I suspect that this isn't what is causing the BSODs, but it's another residual of my WSL2 setup that I would like to get rid of.

    I'm using Windows version 2004.

  2. Hyper V deativication

    Hi Geoffrey,

    Hyper-V lets you run an operating system or computer system as a virtual machine on Windows. Before proceeding in disabling
    Hyper-V, please create a backup of your files for security purposes.

    To disable Hyper-V, please follow the steps below:

    • On the Cortana search box, type Turn Windows Features on or off and press
      Enter.
    • Look for the Hyper-V folder.
    • Uncheck the tick-box next to the main Hyper-V folder and click
      OK.
    • Restart your PC.

    Should you have further questions, please let us know.

  3. Trying to Disable Hyper-V, Getting BSOD

    I have been trying to disable Hyper-V so that I can use VirtualBox. Each time I attempt to remove Hyper-V through Windows Features, the OS shuts down, and then hits a BSODs during boot. I am then able to return to a restore point.

    I have tried:

    • Removing the Hyper-V features after a clean boot.
    • Manually disabling the Hyper-V service, manually removing Hyper-V network adapters, and then disabling Hyper-V in Windows Featuers.

    I believe the issue might be similar to this (but not the exact same): Trying disable Hyper-V cause blue screen when windows restart
