I run the Windows 10 Pro Edition (Version 22H2) on my desktop PC. Although hardware capability is present (x64-bitsystem) and configured the BIOS (Intel VMX), enabling Hyper-V through PowerShell (as admin) or the windows-integrated-feature-manager is not possible after following instructions given on Microsofts thread on the topic. Certain functions and cmdlets aren't recognized by PowerShell hence, Hyper-V isn't working. It also keeps disabling itself in a unpredictable fashion, therefore being obligated to enable it multiple times with every session trying to set up a hypervisor. NO third-party programms are installed that could conflict.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me troubleshoot it.

    You can also try adding the feature via Control Panel. It's also possible windows is somehow broken. Usually the simplest / quickest solution here is to clean install it, patch fully, add the feature and move on.
