    Hyper-V not installing


    I need to install Hyper-V, to run Windows Phone 8 emulator on my machine. But I am(actually my system) not able to complete the installation process.
    When I enable Hyper-V in the window, it asks for a restart. After restart, during logon screen, it shows Updating. At around 91-95%, system shows "We couldn't complete the features. Restarting." And system rolls back. Please help, as I want to really use WP8 emulator.

    Also my system meets all the necessary system requirements for Hyper-V, already checked via CoreInfo, and Virtualization is ON in BIOS.

    Hello and welcome to the forums. Do you have a Gigabyte motherboard?

Hyper-V has been enabled in Windows Features but when the management console appears it offers no list of choices in the righthand menu - just "connect." The lefthand menu is similarly bare. Perhaps someone has a clue on what's missing, and a step-by-step tutorial on how to recreate the XP-mode...
