  • Missing NumLock check-box in BIOS

    Hello Y-all
    I have a few win 8 (64) and 8.1 (64)computers where I use Hyper-V.

    I have read (and seen screen captures) that the BIOS settings section of each VM is supposed to have a "Num Lock" check box - to turn on/off the Num Lock key.

    None of my virtual machine (in win 8/8.1 64 native Hyper-V) has this checkbox.

    Doe's anyone know how to "get it back" or otherwise re-establish its functionality?

    Something odd with your setup as my (Win 8.0) host definitely has it.

    However a little powershell will also allow you to set it:
