As you can noticed, virtualization and Hyper-V cannot work at the same time on Windows 10. If you have Hyper-V installed and in the same device you have other system like VirtualBox, BlueStacks, the steps in this post will help you disable hyper v using Command Prompt so that you can run your virtualization software.

Go to the Windows 10 search box, then type cmd

Right-click on Command Prompt, and then select Run as administrator to Run Windows Command Prompt as Administrator.

In the Command Prompt window, type the command below and press Enter.


If the hypervisor launch type is set to auto, you must disable it.

To put Hyper-V off, type the command below and press enter.

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

If all goes well, a message will display: The operation completed successfully.

For this to take effect you must restart the computer.

 To check the status of the launch type hypervisor, type the command below and press Enter.


To re-enable Hyper-V on Windows 10, type the command below and press Enter.
