Looks like something went wrong in step ´Checking status on default´… Press any key to continue…

It looks like you’re using Docker Toolbox - I recommend just using Docker for Windows:

I’m actually having the exact same issue with Docker Toolbox. I’m using Windows 10 home, and receive the exact same error. I’ve uninstalled VirtualBox and reinstalled version 5.1.24, but no luck.

According to the documentation, Docker for Windows needs Windows 10 Pro or better; Windows 10 Home will not work. Anyone have suggestions on how to resolve this error with Docker Toolbox?

I’m in the same boat (Windows 10 Home) with the same error. Any help regarding the VirtualBox bug would be great.

I ran into the same issue trying to install Docker Toolbox on to Windows 8.1 64 bit. I resolved the problem by uninstalling the Oracle VirtualBox, then reinstalling, this time selecting the NDIS5 driver instead of the the default NDIS6 driver. No issues after that.
