      My computer was running Window 10 1803 with Hyper-V role/function enabled/installed.
      Hyper-V was working on this computer since first W10-release. Since W10 1809 Hyper-V is NOT working anymore.

      I did a clean install of 1809 on my system.
      I did enable/install Hyper-V role/function on fresh installed 1809. A reboot is needed, but Windows does NOT boot anymore.

      I found out, that after disabling the “VT-d” technology in BIOS/UEFI, W10 does boot again.
      Of course Hyper-V does NOT work without VT-d and now I am [out of luck].

      The problem is reproducible and well the story behind is much longer. It started by in-place upgrade to 1809 failed x-times …
      After doing some research I found out, that I am not alone with this issue.
      The relationship seems to be the CPU/Platform. My system uses AMD Phenom II X6 CPU. (870 Chipset)

      I tried getting in touch with Microsoft, but ofc I was not able to pass the 1st-Level-Support barrier.
      They only tried to point me to a workaround for an other Hyper-V problem, which is out of context.
      I did a roll-back to 1803, because I need Hyper-V.

      I don’t know how to get Microsoft pick-up the issue.
      Thank you

      I noticed that you posted the same thing on Tenforums:

      First, a protip: You won’t get anywhere with Microsoft by coming down on the folks in the forums. The individuals you’ll be dealing with are just that – individuals. They didn’t create the problem. If you’re lucky, they may help you solve it.

      Now… as far as fixing the problem… if I were you, I would start on Technet. There’s an identical problem with a solution here.

      If that doesn’t work, I’d just wait. Why are you in such a hurry to install 1809?

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
