Disabling Hyper-V on Windows 8

You can disable Hyper-V without deinstalling it. Start a command prompt with administrator rights and execute the following command:


bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Reboot windows. Hyper-V is disabled now. If you want to enable it, then run this command:


bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

and reboot again.

This solution still needs a reboot, but you don’t mess up your registry and don’t lose configuration settings.
