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. 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.
I have many virtual machines in my VMWare Workstation install on Windows 7. I have now let Windows 8.1 lose on the bare metal of this machine as a dual booting system. I have enabled Hyper V on 8.1 to "play around with it and when I went to install VMWare the installer quit stating Workstation could not be installed with Hyper V installed. I don't have to know about Hyper V was just going to play around with it but VMWare will always be my main virtual platform.
I enabled Hyper-V on my computer. When it restared I saw it was configuring Hyper-V. I didn't opened Hyper-V the same day. Two days later, I wont to open Hyper-V but I can't find it anywhere! Also, it isn't listed in programs anymore... I also enabled virtualisation in the BIOS.
I've installed Win Pro 8.1 on a new desktop and added the Hyper-V feature. Checking the bios shows Virtualization is enabled, and I contacted intel about the processor who verified it supports virtualization (dell said it doesn't). I can start the VM manager, create an Internal Lan Switch and go through the steps to create a new VM machine. When I click on Connect the VM window opens, then I start it. At that point the VM screen says "Connecting to Vm1. It cycles through for a while then shows an message " it couldn't start try again if this persists contact your system admin" (paraphrasing). What I find more odd is the bottom pane that opens in the VM manager when I connect to the VM shows the VMs state(?) and the image loads with a login screen.
One other thing, when I try to stop the virtual machine in the Manager it says stopping but never really does it hangs up. The manager is responsive but no commands seem to execute. I then go to Services in msc and stop it and it says stopping the service and hangs there with the service grayed out and not able to select start, stop, refresh etc.
I have a Microsoft Surface Pro where I have installed the Hyper-V manager and so on. I have made a virtual external switch and a virtual machine with Server 2012 on it. It connects fine to the switch. The Hyper-V makes a virtual bridge and all seems fine. But the guest does'nt get an IP adresse, and can't connect to the internet/LAN.
I have made the exact same setup on my laptop connected to Ethernet and there is no problem at all.
Does the Surface Pro Wireless have a problem with Hyper-v ?
I have a Mac running Windows 8.1 via Parallels. What I am trying to do is set up a test 2012 SBS my PC and while trying to connect to my local machine on Hyper-V I get this [URL] I've tried running as admin, I've also tried starting services however I get this [URL]
I have problem mounting .iso images in Windows 8 Pro.
The error message I was getting was this:
and in powershell I got this:
Essentially the problem is that windows .iso mounting does not like 'sparse' files. I had used Acronis backup to backup my original .iso files and this DOES use sparse files. You can check if a file is 'sparsed' by looking at the files details in properties. The 'P' in the attributes represents a sparse file. See the screenshot below.
The result? When I restored my .iso images I could no longer mount them.
The simplest solution I have found is to just copy the .iso to a new file - this seems to create the new file without the sparse flag set.
I've been dual-booting Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, but a while back my Windows 8 kind of went "South" and wouldn't boot at all (I got an error message that a device was "not attached"). I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.
The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.
After installing Windows 8 in most cases you have to install .Net Framework 3.5 to be able to install or run some 3rd party application. Recently while browsing the internet I came across an offline installer; one that worked perfectly and was very easy to use.
Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 Or .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Win8
I have Windows 8 x64 Enterprise installed and activated through online kms server. my internet is connected and i can browse through my explorers. Some apps such as Mail and internet explorer and store work just fine, but others such as bing and pictures says that i am offline.
I have Windows 8 and use classic live Messenger 2012, it connects good but all contacts appear offline, trough Windows 8 messaging all contacts ok, connected and talking.
I tried with built in Windows 8 messaging application connected and disconected but same result. If I connect to other account with live Messenger 2012 all works ok, but with the account that is configured like Windows 8 logging account, don't, it connects but all contacts shown offline.
I just bought a new computer with windows 8.1, and can find no way to disable my internet connection. This is a home computer, and I don't need or want it on all the time. Is there a way to disable it short of disconnecting the Ethernet cord?
I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire running Windows 8 and use Outlook as may email facility.
My previous laptop ran on Vista and I was able to see my email folders and work on them offline when no network was available - I could prepare email drafts and save them for sending when connected. I do not seem to be able to do this now.
Epson WF 2540 keeps going offline every time my Dell XPS 13 running Windows 8 goes to sleep. Am looking to see what I need to change in the software to keep this from happening. It will go back online after sometime or I have to go and turn it off to get it back online.
I have a valid activated 8.1 Pro + W M C system and need to do several re-installs on the same partition and hardware to test some unattended scripts for customization, etc.
When I re install, there is no network connectivity until I install the proper drivers. I am currently replacing the install data. that and token data with the activated versions from my original install, after which I run slmgr. -i p k with the original key without any errors, but the system shows not activated. I don't remember this being the case with Win 8 doing the same thing.
Apparently, just restoring the activated tokens and installing the same product key isn't enough to get back the previous activation status when offline. I can reactivate going online and that stays activated even after going back offline, but not after a re-install. I always have to reactivate online. How to avoid this?
What I need to know is that: Is that possible to integrate a loader onto Windows 8 boot loader to reset the activation to trial period and then activate the system with an offline key (activate as offline only)?
This way we could make somekind of loader to set activation status as OK as far as online is not intented. And we can continue to have an trial adventure for life with Windows 8. Is that possible or no one tried it yet?
One more question, does the dev who made that topic has the tool for his method so we can try it on any win8 machine? If so, download link?
installing from Control Panel > Programs and Features ("online install")offline install via DISMthird party utilities that provide an interface for DISM, hoping to prevent typing errorscopying the /sources/sxs to the C: drive and trying all the above again.
What I have not done is refreshing, resetting or reinstalling. I've put too much work into setting up Windows 8.
There is one constant in every attempt: the returned error code is 0x800F0922. However, I cannot find an explanation for this error code. Every reference I have found to this error code doesn't explain the error code, but instead provides one of the solutions for installing .net 3.5 which I've already tried.
I am now at a dead end. I cannot install .net 3.5 by any method posted here, and I cannot find an explanation for why I cannot install. I think my best, last course of action is to somehow find out the meaning of 0x800F0922
EDIT - Here is an excerpt from my DISM log (with emphasis added):
Encountered the option "featurename" with value "NetFX3" Encountered an unknown option "featurename" with value "NetFX3" Encountered the option "source" with value "D:sourcessxs"
So far I am extremely happy with my Asus table and Windows 8.1. Everything I have tried to do was simple and easy except one thing. Since for some (stupid reason IMO) reason few of the Windows tablets have the GPS enabled the ME400C included so i am forced to use a Bluetooth GPS. But I have found few maps that are off line. I have tried about every app I can find and the most promising was HERE that has offline maps but it doesn't seem to support the GPS, at least I haven't been able to get it to see my BT GPS. Any good combination of the works with a Bluetooth GPS and has offline maps?
When computer starts up it has the screen showing date and time. As soon as I touch any key, a green screen with email address pops up. It wants me to type in password. Once I type the password in it tells me my PC is offfline. Please sign in with the last password used on the PC. I have no desktop, nothing. Just goes back and forth between these two screens.
