Error after installing DOCKER on Windows 10

After installing DOCKER on my Windows 10 PC; i opened a Power Shell window to run:

docker run hello-world

But it resulted on the following error:

Unable to find image ‘hello-world:latest’ locally

Please help me.

Any luck in terms of progress?

I failed to do “docker run hello-world” as well, same error. Want to know how to solve it and move on.


I solved this issue after switching to Linux containers from Windows containers.

To be able to switch to Linux container, Hyper-V and Visualization (enable it in BIOS) must be enabled.
