I can't upgrade to x64 due to my native OS was Windows 7 Starter.
It shows Hyper-V in Add or Remove Windows Features. I Enabled it, after restart it keeps the checked status.
But on Start Screen it shows: Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection and Hyper-V Manager.
I Opened Hyper-V Manager but it doesn't show the option to create VM.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hyper-V hypervisor ( the server, the hyper-v platform ) don't work on 32 bits, you need the 64 bits , what you have is the console to manage hyper-v servers ( in your pc or in other pcs) so the fact it's there don't means the base ( hypervisor , hyper-v platform) is install . The Virtual Machine connection is the same, you can use it to connect to VM in another PC

to be able to run VM in your PC , the Hyper-V platform as to be check
