Bootcamp running Windows - "Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protection must be enabled in the BIOS"


(Jamescrowley) #1

I’m getting the message “Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protection must be enabled in the BIOS” when starting Docker for Windows on a Bootcamped Windows installation. Any idea what I’m doing wrong here? HyperV is enabled but I’m not aware there’s any way to enable what Docker is asking me to on a MacBook Pro!

Thanks

J

Googling returns a couple of suggestions:

Thanks Michael. I had thought it was Docker specific but it does appear to be Hyper-V related instead.

That said, a more helpful error message from Docker for Windows would be fab - not sure the best avenue to suggest that? GitHub?
