I am running Mavericks on a late 2013 model MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Intel i5 chip) and have installed Windows 8.1 into a bootcamp partition. Under Bootcamp, an attempt to start a VM in Hyper-V Manager results in the error message that the VM "could not be started because the hypervisor is not running."
Per Hyper-V Service Manager, the service is started, and I've eliminated the three potential causes provided in the details of the above error dialog box, namely:
- Hardware supports virtualization - it's an i5 and I ran coreinfo to confirm that SLAT is available.
- BIOS configuration - for a Mac, there's no option to tweak BIOS-type settings, but HW virtualization is supposedly enabled by default.
- BCD configuration issues - I checked bcdedit and the hypervisorlaunchtype setting is auto, but reset it and restarted just to be sure.
Additionally, I have set up Parallels 9 to used the Windows 8 bootcamp partition, and when I launch into Parallels, I have no problem setting up and starting a VM. Those same VMs that I've created there, then fail to launch if I restart the machine directly into bootcamp.
What am I missing?
