How to solve Cannot Start BlueStacks Hyper-V problem in Windows?

A lot of us have been through this issue when we freshly install BlueStacks with Hyper-V in Windows 10 PC. After installation, when we first launch the app, it doesn’t run. I think these days BS-4 is shipping with Hyper-V by default when you download the app from their official website. Instead, it gives an error which states –

Cannot start BlueStacks Hyper-V
BlueStacks Hyper-V cannot start as Hyper-V compute platform is not enabled on your PC.
Check FAQ

This is a common error which BS Team hasn’t been able to provide a fool-proof solution to. But there’s always a workaround to issues. In the FAQ link, information is confusing. People are asking in comment boxes about the issues they are facing. Instead of providing a solution, the team is pasting automated messages like this.

These posts in the official BlueStacks Help Center are of no use. The first link below is part of the FAQ link present in the error window.
