    I like Hyper-V better since it's already included in Windows 8.1 Pro and Enterprise, and does what I need/want.

    welp i turned it back on had it all set to go and found out it would not host the operating system i wanted it to darn it, so my question should i turn it off or is it not hurting anything sitting there?, like will i see any performance degradation with it on. i only had one op i wanted to try out and unfortunately i could not find out how to make it work.

    Sorry to hear that. It won't hurt anything to leave Hyper-V enabled, but if you're not going to use it, then you could disable it again if you like.
