Cannot Enable Hyper-V Error on Docker Startup


I have recently downloaded Docker on Windows, and on starting it up for the first time, I am given the error “Cannot enable Hyper-V service”. I did some digging and I cannot find this error anywhere online or how to fix it. I have checked my services.msc to make sure that Hyper-V is enabled and running, and I have used PowerShell commands to force Hyper-V on. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Docker a few times with no luck.

If anyone has had this problem or knows how to fix it, your help would be greatly appreciated.



I also have the same issue and have tried the same to try and fix it.

No luck and I cannot find any further advice online. Any advice would be greatly appreciated : )
