    Correct, you would just delete it's folder afterwards.. When you delete the VM in Hyper-V Manager, it only deletes the virtual machine configuration file, and not the actual .vhdx file(s) for it.

    Those are the default locations. You can also open the VM's settings to see all locations at the bottom.

    Be sure to remove the VM in Hyper-V Manager before deleting the left overs.

    Hi, I experience problems enabling Hyper-V. First I enabled Virtual Machines in BIOS, then tried to find it in "Turn Windows features on and off"- it didn't appear. Tried also by Windows PowerShell and it says that name is unknown. At the end I tried Cmd : dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V /All and I'm getting 0x800f080c error.

    I'd like to install Ubuntu on Hyper-V.

    Please help!
