[BUG] Docker says Virtualization not on - Dell 7040, I5-6500T supports HW Virt !?

Getting this error on Docker startup…
“Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protection must be enabled in the BIOS”

Is this a bug or is there a trick to getting it working?

My system is a Dell 7040 - latest BIOS installed and all Virtualization settings are ON.

Intel I5-6500T specs, supports these:
Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)
Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)
Trusted Execution Technology
Execute Disable Bit

I confirmed with OS “sees” this since under Virtualization status is “Enabled” in Task Manager -> Performance -> CPU tab.

thanks for the help!

Can you please run diagnostics and open an issue with the diagnostic ID here?

I’m new to Docker and did lots of searching on this. The only thing I found in the Wiki:

To view Docker for Windows latest log, click on the Diagnose & Feedback menu entry in the systray and then on the Log file link. You can see the full history of logs in your AppData\Local folder.

Since Docker wont load - I don’t see a way to do it?

I opened the case an attached the log.txt

Which OS do you use? Win10 Pro is needed if you use Hyper-V … If you use win X home, you’ll probably need DokerToolbox.
