  1. Enhanced Session Mode question


    I have a vi-Boot created W10 system that has "Enhanced Session mode" set. Yet when I attempt activate it, the "Enhanced session" is grayed out in the VIEW menu. Is this caused by something that vi-Boot causing ?

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

    Enhanced Session Mode question

    As I understand it, yes it should. You can check in Hyper-V Manager that it has indeed been created as a gen 2 VM. If so, then I can't see why enhanced session mode is not available. Maybe @Kari can help.

    It seems that even for a gen. 2 machine, Pro is still required. I've just tested a viBoot VM of a uefi/gpt Home. This is actually from the same physical machine as my earlier screenshot, an initial install of Home (because it had a Home key in its bios) which was then upgraded to the Pro seen above. No enhanced session mode available for this gen. 2 Home VM.

    ...and simply upgrading that Home VM to Pro makes enhanced session mode available, showing that viBoot was not to blame.

    Enhanced Session Mode question

    Is the image you are using in viBoot an image of a W10 Home system or W10 Pro? Was the image of a Legacy bios/MBR machine or a UEFI/GPT one? The availability (or otherwise) of enhanced session mode depends on which you have used.

    Testing this, for my Legacy/MBR images viBoot creates a Generation 1 machine, for a UEFI/GPT image it's Generation 2. For a Generation 1 VM enhanced session mode is not available for W10 Home as the guest OS, it's available if the guest OS is W10 Pro.

    It makes no difference whether the VM was created by the Hyper-V manager or by viBoot. It's the combination of machine generation and guest OS that determines if enhanced session mode is available. Here's an example of a viBoot VM where it is (Gen. 2, W10 Pro).

    Bree - Its a HOME system based on UEFI/GPT.

    This should work.
