I have a 2008 standard server. I add the role for Hyper V. It takes a long time for it to configure. Then it asks for a reboot. When I sign in again as the same user Hyper V is not installed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe your CPU doesn't support Hyper-V, or you haven't enabled it in the BIOS?

I agree with Rindi...here is how to check to make sure the virtualization technology is turned on your BIOS.
