  1. Enabling the VirtualMachinePlatform feature prevents system from starting up


    I'm trying to update my wsl to wsl 2, following the steps given here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

    On step 3, after I Enable VirtualMachinePlatform feature using dism.exe and restart my system, it gets stuck at a blank screen after the spinning dots. It just shows a blank screen and won't start up

    I had to boot into safe mode and disable this feature, after which I could boot up windows fine, without any issues.

    My system specs:

    • Version: Microsoft Windows [Version 20H2, OS Build 19042.928]
    • Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 3750H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
    • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
    • RAM: 8GB

    Virtualization is supported on this system, I enabled SVM mode in BIOS

    WSL2 for windows

    Did you first install the virtual machine platform feature as well a the windows subsystem for linux feature? If not, open a POWERSHELL window and run these

    • Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux
    • Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName VirtualMachinePlatform

    Also, make sure that you computer supports virtualization and that it's enabled in the BIOS.

    • Press ‘Windows + X' key on the keyboard.
    • Click on Programs and Features.
    • Select Pokki Start Menu and click on Uninstall.
    • Follow the on screen instructions and restart the computer to complete the process.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    I did this. Pokki was gone, but still no start menu. I still assistance. Thanks.

    Enabling the VirtualMachinePlatform feature prevents system from starting up

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
