After the installation ,following issue might occur in windows .

  6. Looks like something went wrong in step ´Checking status on default´… Press any key to continue…

Resolution :

The above error is because of Hyper Vision . We need to enable HyperVision in windows with the below steps:

->Run a command prompt as administrator and execute:

dism /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V

Note : For some cases ,you will get Feature name Microsoft-Hyper-V is unknown. when you trying to disable Hyper-V from Powershell. Please run below command

DISM /Online /Disable-Feature:HypervisorPlatform

->Reboot windows and type below in command prompt /powershell as admin.

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

If the above issue is not resolved after enabling hypervision then please follow below steps

-> Open C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox

when docker toolbox was installed it should be as “${DOCKER_MACHINE}” create -d virtualbox $PROXY_ENV “${VM}”

Please edit start file as “${DOCKER_MACHINE}” create -d virtualbox -virtualbox-no-vtx-check $PROXY_ENV “${VM}”

-> Run bcdedit in powershell as admin mode,If hyper vision launcher type status OFF then its fine. If it is AUTO then run bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off to change status to OFF.

-> Reboot the system and start docker quick start
