If you are experiencing the problem of “hypervisor launch failed the operating systems boot loader has failed with error 0xc00000BB”, this article will guide you through the process of troubleshooting this issue. The error means that the Hypervisor was unable to start and a reboot is required. You can resolve this issue by following some simple steps:
The first step in troubleshooting this error is to enable hardware-assisted virtualization in your BIOS. To enable this feature, you must configure your BIOS to support DEP and Intel(R) Virtualization Tech. The BIOS also needs to enable the option “Turn on DEP only for essential Windows programs”. The next step is to enable the Auto-Start option in the Boot Configuration Data store.
If the Hypervisor is not enabled, you must disable the secure boot feature in BIOS. This prevents malware from running during the boot sequence. It also only boots software trusted by the OEM. If you have cloned an SSD or modified the hardware, the two processes may conflict with the booting sequence, and secure boot will consider this a breach of security.
The problem is also a sign that the Hyper-V virtual machine was not properly configured. It may not have loaded an operating system or was not properly configured. You can try rebooting the machine and see if the problem persists. If this is not the case, you can retry the Hyper-V launch by using Powershell. The process may take a few seconds and the operating system will boot.
Fortunately, this issue is relatively rare. There are a few things you can try to fix this issue, including installing the January 11, 2022 security update.

In case the ISO is corrupt, you should check the location of the image file. This may be a problem if the ISO is located somewhere other than the default location. When setting up the virtual machine, many people forget to select the ISO location. In such a case, you should choose the option “Image file” and select ISO as the file type.
