    Hello Fulvioval,

    When you install the Media Center Pack, the Add features to Windows 8 wizzard will now no longer be available since there are no longer any additional features available to be added.


    However, that is not what you need for Hyper-V. Instead you would want to open Windows Features to turn on Hyper-V.

    Hope this helps,

    Hello L V,

    Sorry, but Hyper-V is only available in the Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Enterprise editions.
