DockerDesktopVM failed to start

DockerDesktopVM failed to start is driving me crazy. My work computer is a windows 10 and works perfectly installing Docker Desktop… but my personal computer will not start: BIOS virtualization is ON, Hyper-V is enabled… but when my docker starts linux containers… ERROR.

Please HELP!!!
thanks so much

  • Issue type -> installation and start ERROR
  • OS Version/build -> WIndows Pro
  • App version -> Docker version 19.03.8, build afacb8b

In case this helps anyone else getting this issue, I found that running these commands from an admin command prompt fixed my Hyper-V issue:

net stop vmms
net start vmms
I then was able to start my docker container without issue.
