Hi @laurafreirejoias
You need to run the SystemInfo Command in Rhino (type it in the Rhino command prompt) and copy/paste the result in a new post.

Isn’t “Hyper-V” the Windows Virtual Machine tool?
VMs are not officially supported.
Poor performance is one of the reasons.

Hi @laurafreirejoias
Your graphics card really isn’t powerful enough for Rhino 6 (and doesn’t meet the recommended OpenGL 4.1), but it still might work, if you go and update the drivers - your driver is 5 years old :face_with_raised_eyebrow: That’s really, really (really!) old in the world of graphics card drivers. Take a look at the links posted here by @theoutside. Look at the Intel section at the bottom!

@John_Brock - yes, you are right, but if IRC, it’s a Win10 feature for running other OS’es inside Win10, not the other way around. I think this is just the BIOS enabling the feature on a system level… I think… maybe…
