How To Enable Hyper-V On Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049


Microsoft recently released Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049 to Windows Insiders on the Fast ring. It is the first release with Project Spartan in it. This build has a known a bug that affects Hyper-V. Microsoft has provided a workaround for it, read it below.

The bug stops us from being able to correctly register one of our system drivers if you choose to install Hyper-V.  It should be noted that if you already have Hyper-V enabled, and then upgrade to 10049 – everything works fine.  It is only if you install build 10049 and then enable Hyper-V that you will hit this issue.

If you want to use Project Spartan and Hyper-V on the same system – what you need to do is:

  1. Install an earlier version of Windows 10
  2. Enable Hyper-V
  3. Upgrade to 10049

If you are already on 10049 and have not yet enabled Hyper-V, you can either follow the above steps, or hang tight while we work on the next flight!
