Trying to set up Hyper-V on a Windows 10 Pro laptop.
When trying to open the Hyper-V manager, I get a message saying
The Virtual Machine Management Service (VMMS) is not running on this machine.
That is not listed in Services, either, but under add windows features, Hyper-V shows as being installed.

VMMS is in your computer bios.  by default the virtualization is turned off on computers coming from the manufacturer.

log into bios and turn on the VMMS.

the only virtualization options I see in the BIOS is Intel Virtualization Technology which was already enabled.

did some more research and it suggests removing the hyper-v service, rebooting and reinstalling hyper-v.  it appears that something happened that prevented the hypervisor service from installing properly.
