    Display Drivers for XP Not working in Hyper-V

    Hello Everyone!

    Thank you a head of time for you time and efforts!

    How do I fix my display drivers in XP in my win10 Hyper-v virtual machine?

    Installed XP in Hyper-V (Win10). For some reason now the display drivers are not installing. They were working just fine. The only thing I can think of is when I tried to copy the virtual drive while experimenting on virtual drive sizes that some how I corrupted the virtual machine hostiles somehow.

    The Hardware in the XP Manager:

    -Tried and failed to installed the recommended driver from Microsoft updates: No Change
    -Uninstall/reinstall hyper-v: No Change
    -sfc and DISM on windows 10: No Change
    -Created new virtual machines: No Change

    -Reinstall win10, the none destructive fixing option.
    -Always afraid to go back to an earlier restore point because even though MS says it will not destroy private files....it does.
