Fix performance problems with Virtualbox and Vmware on Windows 10

If Virtualbox & VmWare is causing massive problems with just getting a Virtual machine running in windows 10 its probably because you have Hyper-V enabled.  I learned the hard way that having Hyper-V enabled and running Virtualbox is a nightmare.  I kept getting the error;

MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC

Disable Hyper-V if its enabled in windows 10 by going to “Turn windows features on or off” and un select “Hyper-V”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also make sure that its disabled in bcdedit by making sure that you run the command;

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Reboot your System and Virtualbox and Vmware will now work much better.
