Virtualization is an increasingly common practice in server hosting. It consists of creating virtual machines which will be hosted on a physical server. This method thus avoids having several machines to manage different configurations. There are several systems for virtualizing a machine. Two of its systems are Hyper-V and Virtualbox. The first is integrated into Windows operating systems while the second is provided by the company Oracle.
In principle, two virtualization systems can coexist on the same server. But this is not the case for these two software. The error message “virtualbox Raw-mode is unavailable courtesy of Hyper-V windows 10” indicates that Virtualbox cannot launch because Hyper-V is activated. You must therefore deactivate Hyper-V if you want to use Virtualbox.
Open the command prompt in administrator mode. Right click on the software in the start menu and select the option “Open as administrator”. Then issue the “bcdedit” command. It allows you to see the status of the Hypervisor. Then look at the line “hypervisorlaunchtype”. If the value is “auto”, then the hypervisor is configured to launch automatically when the computer starts. To disable it, use the following command:
bcdedit / set hypervisorlaunchtype off
Restart the machine and you will be able to use Virtualbox normally. If you need to use Hyper-V. You will have to do the same manipulation with the following command (and then restart the server):
bcdedit / set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
