    I followed the same on a Windows 10 laptop and disabling Hyper-V triggered the drive encryption solution (Dell Data Protection) to make the data inaccessible as it noticed a config change. See KB https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln292914/

    Hi, NOT your fold, VMWARE disabled the link to “VMware KB (2146361)” – the page stays blank. Same of course for all other tips that use that link

    I’ve tried all the steps mentioned in this site but am still facing the same issue. I’ve gone through a lot of links for the past 2 days and would really appreciate if you could help me out. ANY ideas/suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    This worked for me! I had a BIOS update (Gigabyte) and a major Windows 10 update (1803) between starts of VMWare so I don’t know if BIOS or Windows was the cause, but I started a previously-working VMWare Workstation Pro one morning and saw the error popup.

    I did not have to do the mount fake volume and do BCD Edits… I just changed Group Policy and disabled Hyper-V feature.

    Thanks very much Aruna!

    On Windows 2016 Datacenter [Version 10.0.14393] not working your mountvol syntax:
    mountvol x: /s
    The parameter is incorrect. I don’t have any unused drives to test.
