Installation of Windows 8.1 Client Hyper-v

In this quick post, I will go thru the steps to install Client Hyper-V via Powershell. In this way you can have a script ready and install it on all your computers.

1. Query your computer for the Hyper-V feature.

Get-WindowsOptionalFeature –online | ? {$_.featurename –like “*Hyper*”}

You can see that the Hyper-V feature and tools are not installed. The state appears as Disabled.

2. Let's Enable the Hyper-V feature

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature –FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V-All –All –Online

3. After you enable Hyper-V the installation will ask if you want to reboot your computer. Select (Y) to reboot your computer.

4. After you reboot your computer you will see a new group in your Start screen with your tools to manage your new Hyper-V feature
