Enabling Hypervisor to auto start in the Boot Configuration Database (BCD)

If you are getting the following error when attempting to start a Virtual Machine (VM) in Hyper-V, Virtualization may either be not enabled in BIOS or Hypervisor was not started during your computer start up.

Recently after configuring a computer to dual boot I was unable to start up a virtual machine in the second operating system.  I ran BCDEDIT and determined that there was no entry to start the Hypervisor.  See figure below.

To resolve the issue you will need to add an entry to the BCD Windows Boot Loader to automatically start Hypervisor when the computer starts up.  Type the following command in an administrative command prompt:

BCDEDIT /Set {current} hypervisorlaunchtype auto 

003-BCDEDIT-Enabling-Hypervisor-to-auto-start-BCD

Restart the computer after running the above BCDEDIT command.  Hypervisor will now auto start during computer start up.

Launch an administrative command prompt and run BCDEDIT to verify there is now an entry to auto start hypervisor.

You are all set to run or build virtual machines in Hyper-V.

Until next time, RIDE SAFE!
