I have a MacBook Pro that I wanted to turn into a Windows laptop.

Unfortunately if you install Windows from scratch, without going through Bootcamp to install it side by side with MacOS, Hyper-V support is disabled.

This means that I cannot use WSL2. Or Windows, since without a working Linux environment it's useless to me and I don't want to invest in WSL v1. Might as well go for Ubuntu 20.04.

I found a way to run Windows from scratch and have Hyper-V enabled. Just install rEFInd boot manager and use 'enable_and_lock_vmx true' in the config.

Hi, any article on the subject I could read?

This is the first time I hear of rEFInd.

Thanks ´・ᴗ・`
