    Cannot uninstall Hyper-v from windows 8 and so vmware cannot run

    When I try to go to Control Panel\Programs and click on turn windows features on/off and , it shows ticks on hyper-v is removed.

    Hyper-v platform Is grayed out and When i move the mouse point to Hyper-v platform it shows a message "Hyper-v cannot be installed: A hypervisor is already running"



    But still It gives me an error stating this when i try to open vmware and run a vm..



    VMware Workstation and Hyper-v are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role from the system before running Vmware Workstation


    Moreover, hyper-v service is running and even in metro/modern UI it shows both parts of hyper-v .

    Just put the ticks once again and it prompt to reboot and configure windows hyper-v once again. just ignore hyper-v platform for the moment and the error message "Hyper-v cannot be installed: A hypervisor is already running"

    Just restart.

    Upon rebooting you can put the tick on hyper-v platform. once again reboot and windows will configure the components..

    Upon reboot finally you are ready to uninstall and this time you will be succeeded for sure.

    As soon as uninstallation hyper-v windows will prompt to reboot.. Just reboot.. NEVER EVER forget to reboot as soon as it is uninstalled

    This error is caused because at the first time uninstallation, it is ignored to reboot as soon as uninstallation process is done.. As a result, windows cannot be configured its components and gives such errors..
