Hello experts,

I am running Windows 2008 R2 SP1 on a desktop with Intel i7 2600 CPU, Intel DH67BL main board and 16GB DDR3.

When trying to start the first hyper-V virtual machine, I am getting this error:

[Window Title]
Hyper-V Manager

[Main Instruction]
An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s).

[Content]
'VirtualXP' could not initialize.

The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.

[Expanded Information]
'VirtualXP' could not initialize. (Virtual machine ID XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXXXXX)

The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.  The following actions may help you resolve the problem:

1) Verify that the processor of the physical computer has a supported version of hardware-assisted virtualization.

2) Verify that hardware-assisted virtualization and hardware-assisted data execution protection are enabled in the BIOS of the physical computer.  (If you edit the BIOS to enable either setting, you must turn off the power to the physical computer and then turn it back on.  Resetting the physical computer is not sufficient.)

3) If you have made changes to the Boot Configuration Data store, review these changes to ensure that the hypervisor is configured to launch automatically.

I have enabled Intel Virtualization Technology in the Bios.

Is there anything else I have to do to solve this error?

Run COREINFO -v (download it from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc835722)

You should get this if the cpu is set up properly:

Thank you. Actually the feature name in system bios is (Execute Disable Bit), that is why I got confused about and missed it. Now after enabling it, Hyper-V is running well.
