I have read a number of forum posts suggesting an incompatibility with USB 3.0, but these all referred to a gigabyte mobo, whereas I am on an HP laptop. Suggestions?

EDIT

Issue persists after clean install and latest driver updates (including BIOS).

  • make/model - HP pavilion m6 k010dx
  • platfrom - win8.1 x64 enterprise

Additional notes; hyper-v is enabled (checked off) under "turn windows features on or off" (both Mangagement Tools and Platform) but disabled in Bios. I have yet to test any of the actual functionality, I will try that next if anyone considers it a good idea.

UPDATE

Attempted sysprep as described here; http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Lockups-Freezes-Hangs/Cannot-boot-if-HP-ENVY-Bios-Virtualization-enabled-for-Win8/td-p/2006815/page/7

Without generalized switch; no effect. With generalized switch, execution fails with non-specific error. Later reinstalled for unrelated reason; currently hyper-V is not checked of under enable/disable features and inactive in BIOS.

UPDATE 2

Installing an earlier version of the Bluetooth driver allowed me to boot with Hyper-V enabled in the bios, but once I enabled it in Win8.1 I stopped booting again.

More information is required because the windows feature in question should not be doing what you describe be as detailed as possible –  Ramhound Mar 21 at 2:46

I think I am having the issue described here; h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Lockups-Freezes-Hangs/… I will confirm as soon as I finish provisioning install media –  jamesson Mar 21 at 3:04
    
@Ramhound, the only thing I haven't tried yet is disabling the BT driver, but I kinda need BT on this system. –  jamesson Mar 22 at 18:49

Bluetooth.

Especially Ralink. After long time finally I was able to get Hyper V installed and running. Disable bluetooth connection (run ncpa.cpl or via control panel). Deinstall all bluetooth devices (devmgmt.msc) , including drivers. If you have hardware button to turn bluetooth off do it. Maybe try to disable it in BIOS.

Reboot (this is a must, becaue drivers are needed to be out of system). Install Hyper V. Reboot once more. Never turn on/install bluetooth again (it is useless on laptop or pc anyway).

Enjoy Hyper V.

Hope it helped you.
