What is the Difference Between Hyper-V and CPU Virtualization?

JamesBacon 0 Reputation points

so in regard to Virtual Machines, I am aware that you need to enable Virtualization in the Bios, which is related to the CPU; however, there's also Hyper-V within Windows itself

what's the difference between the two? does enabling Hyper-V automatically enable Virtualization in the Firmware? does Hyper-V simply allow you to create a VM as long as the Bios Virtualization is enabled?

I was able to turn Hyper-V on without Virtualization enabled in the Bios, so what would have happened if I tried to use it?
