  • Hi Zapalka,

    To check whether your computer supports Hyper-v, please refer to:

    # Does your Windows 8.1 computer supports Hyper-V?


    To install the Hyper-v on Windows 8.1, please refer to:

    # Enabling Hyper-V for use on Windows 8.1


    If you have the issues about Windows Phone, I suggest that you should post it in the Windows Phone forum for efficient response.

    For the issues of Hyper-v, please post it to the corresponding forum for efficient response.


    Best Regards

  • Thanks for your reply, but problem is with my Windows, which is just 8.1, not Pro or Enterprise. Client Hyper-V is only available on Pro and Enterprise. My CPU supports SLAT.

    Any way to download Hyper-V and install it on my Windows?

    Best Regards

  • Hello Zapalka,

    Hyper-V comes with Windows 8 or above. You cannot download Hyper-V as a separate product.

    Hope this helps.
