Easily Disable Hyper-V To run VMWare and Virtual Box

Hyper-V is the evil. it doesn’t allow you to run VMWare or Vbox. I had this issue that Virtual Box was telling me that I don’t have VT Enabled in my BIOS, Atleast VMWare tells you that it is incompatible with Hyper-V.

Hyper-V might be installed on your System with some other app, like Visual Studio. Anyway The way that I usually deal with this problem is to disable it, not to remove it. it’s much more convenient to run a single command and Disable it.

To disable hyper-v run this command in your Command Prompt (as Administrator of course):

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

To enable it back:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

This works on Windows 8 and Above. Hey don’t forget you need to reboot your machine for the changes to apply.
