Diagnose VM start up failiures

I have a new laptop (Alienware m15 R2) that I’d like to run Docker for Windows on. I have an issue whereby on start up Docker fails. This is the error log from Docker. This behaviour is also seen when I go into Hyper-V Manager and try to start the same VM. This is not an uncommon error message and I’ve spent a couple of days searching and applying proposed solutions but to no (positive) affect**. Is there a way of getting more detailed failure information out of the VM startup sequence?** It fails at about 10% of the way through start up.

Unable to start - The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: ‘DockerDesktopVM’ failed to start . (Virtual machine ID 434B5A1D-340D-4701-8B5A-B3CC3CC353A6)
