  • Call to WHvSetupPartition failed: ERROR_SUCCESS (VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED)

    Posted by Christophe on February 7, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    I was having some issues with VirtualBox out of nowhere, and I hadn’t changed any settings in a while so I’m not quite sure why this became a problem (maybe a Windows update changed configs?), but here was my solution:

    1. Open up Windows Features via search

    2. Uncheck these (if they’re already checked and/or exist):

    a. Hyper-V

    b. Containers

    c. Virtual Machine Platform

    d. Windows Hypervisor Platform

    3. If this still doesn’t solve your issue, do this:

    a. Open Windows PowerShell via search

    b. Type bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

    c. Reboot the machine

    Just note that following these steps will most likely make WSL (Windows Subsystem) not work unless you reverse these changes.

    Hope this helps
