Hi, I’m also getting the same issues and below is crash report.

38527887-88C4-47EC-8D21-D98A92197C62/2016-11-08_12-53-42

I’m getting below error message -

Unable to create: The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: The object already exists.

I tried uninstall and installing it again but that didn’t help, I’m getting the same issue.

I have the same problem as described here. Reinstalling Docker did not work.
Windows 10 Pro
Docker For Windows 17.09.0-ce-win33

Unable to create: The running command stopped because the preference variable "ErrorActionPreference" or common parameter is set to Stop: Failed to create the virtual hard disk.

The system failed to create 'C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks\MobyLinuxVM.vhdx'.

However, I went to Windows Features and unchecked Hyper-V checkbox. The system had to be restarted and from then on docker is running again.

Note: Hyper-V is still checked, I guess docker automatically re-activated it.

Kinda of makes me really nervous, because i have tried everything, and I still don’t know what to do…I feel like I’m starting giving up!
