This is just a quick tutorial to teach you how to remove “Virtual Machine:yes” from task manager in windows 10. I can’t confirm it will work for windows 8 but I will assume it will. Make sure your VM is fully powered off.
- Open your VM’s .vmx file with notepad++
- add the following lines in;
hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = “FALSE”
vhv.enable = “TRUE”
vpmc.enable = “TRUE”
mce.enable = “TRUE”
vhu.enable = “TRUE”
It should look like this:
(no it doesn’t need to be in the same order as in the photo T_T)
After this save changes and navigate to your VM hardware settings tab, click the processors option and be sure both of these are checked.
- Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI
- Virtualize CPU performance counters.
After you’ve successfully followed the steps above your VM’s task manager should be saying this:
Congratulations! You’ve successfully hidden your VM from task manager!
