Installing Docker on Windows (Linux Container Mode)

I’ve installed Docker for Windows v18.0.6.1 (Stable Version) on my Windows 10 Pro laptop in Linux container mode. The Docker service does not startup and throws the below error,
I’ve granted the permissions on Windows Firewall as well.

No activity detected on VM, aborting
   at Docker.Core.Pipe.NamedPipeClient.Send(String action, Object[] parameters) in C:\gopath\src\\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Core\pipe\NamedPipeClient.cs:line 36
   at Docker.Actions.<>c__DisplayClass25_0.<SwitchDaemon>b__0() in C:\gopath\src\\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Windows\Actions.cs:line 275
   at Docker.WPF.TaskQueue.<>c__DisplayClass19_0.<.ctor>b__1() in C:\gopath\src\\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.WPF\TaskQueue.cs:line 59

The Windows Container mode is able to startup without issues. Any help / tips to take this forward will be of great help.

Docker Version: v18.06.1-CE-win73
OS: Windows 10 Pro
