You cannot make Hyper-V work on Windows 7.  Hyper-V is a bare metal Hypervisor and wasn't included with Windows 7.

Did you mean Virtual PC?  That's a VERY DIFFERENT type of virtual software.

Would be extremely helpful to know what steps you tried following.

Your question really says nothing.  It is the equivalent of saying...

I tried to drive my car but I couldn't, I need help.

When you ask a question, at least give an outline the actual problem you had, some details of what you have already tried. What web site you followed for instructions....

Helps us to answer if we at least have a proper question.

For Windows 7, if you want a virtualizing application, VMware Workstation is top of class and is the most flexible tool. I used on my Windows 7 machine, I use it now on my Windows 8.1 machine and it works on a test Windows 10 machine.

You need a newer machine with Windows 8.1 or newer to do what you suggest.

Not clear enough

What is not clear. We gave you workable options.
I agree that your Question isn't clear. You could, rather than delete this though, do some more explaining on what you are actually trying to do... As leew already mentioned Hyper-V isn't available for Windows 7 and you can't install it on that OS. But perhaps you want to do something else. Just explain that here so the Question becomes clear.
What you accepted now isn't a solution, it rather just asks why you want to delete the Question. You must either accept comments that are answers, (leew's comment, the first one in this thread), is the correct answer to your Question, or then give us more details on what you are actually trying to do.

Objecting since strictly speaking, the combined question and title are answered by my comment - Hyper-V cannot be installed ON Windows 7.
