    Can't run games on host machine while Hyper-V is running


    Hi

    So, I just made a W10 VM with Hyper-V and it's running fine (I only assigned it 1 core and 1.5GB of memory). The VM is running a background process that consumes nothing, it's basically idling.

    Now I go back to the host machine and I can't start any game. None. They all crash/freeze with a black screen as soon as I open the exe. Ofc they all ran fine before. I closed the "screen" window of the VM, I only have the Hyper-V Manager with the VM in the background. WTF? I don't get it. I assume Hyper-V is taking up the GPU or something? Only games don't work, other programs are fine. Yet GPU usage in the task manager is 0%. CPU usage 5-10% and memory 52% (I have 8GB, all the games I'm trying to run are old enough, 4GB left should be plenty). Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Cannot turn off Hyper V, cannot run Virtual Box machines or VMWare machines

    Since the latest update:

    Edition: Windows 10 Pro

    Verion: 1607

    OS Build: 14393.222

    I can no longer turn off Hyper V and thus cannot run Virtual Box machines or VMware machines.

    When I attempt to turn off Hyper V and restart Windows as requested, Windows simply re-enables Hyper V.

    Then when I try to run a Virtual Box machine, I get an error like this:

    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Centos 70.

    VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

    Result Code:

    Component:
    ConsoleWrap

    Interface:
    IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

    When I try to start a VMware machine, I get this:

    VMware Player and Hyper-V are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role from the system before running VMware Player.

    But as I have noted, I am not able to turn off Hyper-V since the Anniversary Update.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hyper-V with OpenVPN on Host Machine

    Hi All,

    I'm running Windows 10 Build 10565 with Hyper-V role. My PC(Host Machine) has an assigned IP with MAC binding, and a data limit. So I use OpenVPN with IPv6 to get unlimited access to the Internet(through a VPS remotely). That's to say, I have a physical
    Network Card and a Virtual Network Card(TAP-V9 by OpenVPN) before the Hyper-V installed. When I launched a VM, I could not get access to the Internet on it(running Win7) in any configuration of virtual NIC. Besides, if I set the Virtual NIC with the physical
    network card in external mode, it would also break the OpenVPN access. So how do I config the Hyper-V Virtual NIC to get it work?

    Any Advise would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
