Microsoft To Activate Hyper-V Functions Within Additional Hardware For Windows 10 Virtual Machines

The new Windows 10 Insider Preview build for the Fast Ring participants has quite a few bug fixes and performance improvements. However, one of the most notable inclusions is the support for Hyper-V functions for additional devices running on diverse CPU Architecture.

The upcoming Windows 10 version for Fast Ring members could significantly boost the appeal of the operating system within the enthusiast, coding, and development sector. Microsoft Windows 10 v19559 Insider Preview comes with quite a few bug fixes and improvements. But it also includes support for Hyper-V functions for devices with ARM64 architecture. Needless to add, with Windows-On-Arm (WoA) being actively developed and experimented, the support for virtualization on ARM-based devices is quite an important addition.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19559.1000 Contains A Few New Features As Focus Is On Fixing Bugs And Improving User Experience:

The recently released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19559.1000 for Fast Ring participants appears to be heavily inclined towards bug fixes, stability and performance improvements. The latest build appears to be light on new features. In fact, only a few select PCs running Windows 10 on specific hardware should benefit from the new features.

These specifically include all systems that are equipped with an Enterprise or Pro version of Windows 10 and rely on the ARM64 architecture. Specifically, these versions of Windows 10 are used in the new Microsoft Surface Pro X, among a few others. Microsoft will be activating the Hyper-V function for these machines. The function can be used to create Virtual Machines (VM).

Following are the most notable changes and improvements in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19559.1000:

  • All insiders who use an ARM64 device, such as the Surface Pro X, with the Enterprise or Pro Edition, can now see and install Hyper-V functions.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that could cause Explorer.exe to crash when moving back from folders with .heic (Apple’s image file format) or RAW files.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Explorer.exe to freeze when trying to delete certain large .tif files.
  • A bug that caused the top pixels of a window to be cut off when using WIN + Above and then moving the window to the side with WIN + Left / Right has been fixed.
  • Addressed issue that caused Event Viewer to crash when certain events were recently selected.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused some insiders to get a green screen with the error KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED in newer builds.
  • The IME candidate window for East Asian IMEs (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and the Japanese IME) opens normally in newer versions.

Windows 10 Users Struggle With Several Bugs In The Latest Stable Release:

Despite the several bug fixes and improvements, the current Windows 10 OS users, who have installed Windows 10 November 2019 Update, continue to experience several weird behavioral issues and bugs. Reports indicate a few Windows Insiders are unable to upgrade to newer builds, the system hangs, and errors 0x8007042b or 0xc1900101 occur.

Some computers running Windows 10 no longer “sleep” when idle. Currently, the only solution is to manually trigger the Sleep Mode (Start> Power button> Sleep mode). Some Insiders are also experiencing the ‘WSL Issue 4860’ Error. This error message occurs with some insiders when using WSL2. Microsoft has assured that a solution is ready, and it will be included in an upcoming update.
