Installed all drivers successfully, installed all updates to-date, in Legacy mode, and my Virtualization option in BIOS is enable, all should seem right. Well, be informed by this post that if you go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and enable (check) all Hyper-V components. Now, when I "Apply all updates" (after checking all Hyper-V boxes), restart the computer (to apply the updates), my computer loops endlessly. I have pin-pointed the problem though. After going into Safe Mode with Networking mode, disabled (uncheck) the HYPER-V PLATFORM option, my computer then boots successfully, and I can connect to an external server using the Hyper-V Manager. With that being said, I need help from you fellow forum participants, thank you in advance.
