    Hyper-V Manager won't connect to local computer (error message)

    System specs are below. Virtualization is turned on in BIOS. Hyper-V is installed.

    When I start Hyper-V Manager it's not connected to a server. I click Connect to Server->Local Computer and get the error message (see below).

    I can see none of the Hyper-V services are running. If I try starting Hyper-V VM Session Service manually, I get the error shown below.

    Any ideas how to get Hyper-V up and running? Thanks in advance for any ideas/help.

    You have a Core 2 Duo E7300 processor. Unfortually, this processor does not support Second Level Address Translation or Intel Virtualization Technology, so you can't run Client Hyper-V (ie Window 8 or Windows 10 Hyper-V).


    While your BIOS supports turning on Virtualization, your Processor does not.

    You misread the CPU model. It's an Intel Core 2 E7600 processor. It does support Intel Virtualization.


    /* EDIT */
    Ahhh, but on further reading, and as you mention, Hyper-V SLAT (Second Level Address Translations Extensions) is also required (though not often mentioned).

    So, I'd call this a bug. Windows 8 returns an installation error message if SLAT isn't supported. Win 10 Preview does not.

    Sorry, yeah, I misread that number. But, as you have found out, it still won't work because of a lack of SLAT. Strangely, SLAT is only required in the Desktop OS version, not in the Server version.

    It may be that MS intended to remove SLAT restrictions for Windows 10, but it hasn't yet (or just didn't) make it into the build. Or it may be, as you say, a bug in detecting SLAT for Desktops.
