  1. Enabling WSL/Hyper-V causes vram to change back to 2GB ?


    Today, i wanted to try out wsl. As a linux and windows user, this would be very helpful! But when i enabled it and restarted my pc, i found out in task manager that my ram has changed form 7.4 gb to 5.9 gb. The "5.9 GB of ram" seemed familiar, because when i bought this pc, it originally came with 8gb of ram but 2.1gb hardware reserved. that 2 gigs of hardware reserved actually was reserved for the Integrated gpu's vram. Since i kinda needed ram more than vram as i dont play games that much, i went into the motherboard bios, and changed the gpu memory from 2G to 512M. Then i got 7.4 gb of r

    Can't Enable Hyper-V in Windows 10 Professional

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your effort on this. As per my research the error code 0x800f0831 is generated when .Net Framework 3.5 is not enabled on the computer. I suggest you to try enabling .Net Framework 3.5 on the computer. Follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Click on Turn Windows features on or off.
    4. Now, select the check box for .Net Framework 3.5 and click on
      OK.
    5. Restart the computer.


    You can also check if Virtualization feature is enabled in BIOS or not, if it is not enabled, I suggest you to enable it.



    You may also refer the troubleshooting steps performed by Jins Peter replied on August 13, 2019 in the thread

  4. Enabling WSL/Hyper-V causes vram to change back to 2GB ?

    Enabling Hyper-V causes Windows 10 unable to boot

    I'm having issues enabling Hyper-V in the "Add Windows Features" option in the control panel. I was hoping to increase performance with Google's Android Emulator for testing. Upon enabling Hyper-V, Windows
    applies changes and resets. Windows is then unable to boot after this. Previously I had thought it may have been conflicting drivers from Virtualbox. After the last attempt, I was unable to use system restore or boot into Safe Mode and had to clean install.

    I clean installed Windows 10 and installed windows updates and graphics / chipset drivers and tried to re-enable Hyper-V again. I also tried disabling "Fast Boot" in control panel at this time after reading
    it may cause issues when enabling Hyper-V. I ran into the same problem but thankfully was able to boot into safe mode and windows successfully rolled back the feature and then booted normally.

    I have the virtualization option enabled in BIOS. According to systeminfo, I have the requirements for Hyper-V AFAIK.

    systeminfo command reads as follows:

    • VM Monitor Mode Extensions: Yes
    • Virtualization Enabled in Firmware: Yes
    • Second Level Address Translation: Yes
    • Data Execution Prevention Available: Yes
    OS and Hardware:

    • Windows 10 Enterprise
    • MSI x470 Gaming Plus
    • Ryzen 3 2200g

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if any additional information is required.
