No Hyper-V for you!

I want to use Hyper-V from Windows 8. But the “Turn Windows features on or off” wizard has Hyper-V platform grayed out. Telling me the processor misses SLAT in the tooltip.

Turn Windows features on or off with Hyper-V platform grayed out

My machine has an older Core 2 Duo T5500 processor that supports Hardware Virtualization in the BIOS. But this SLAT is something else and can be detected with Coreinfo.


This showed my processor was laking the SLAT, which is called EPT by intel. By the way the dash means missing.

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
