Problem with docker for windows installation


(Madan21) #1

I am new to docker. I am using Windows 10 pro in my desktop.
After installing docker for windows, when trying to run docker

An error occurred
Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protected must be enabled in the BIOS.

Checked Hyper-v and Virtualization, but why still getting this error?

Again open Windows PowerShell and try run docker command - docker run hello-world

C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe: error during connect: Post http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.38/containers/create: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.
See ‘C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe run --help’.

Can anyone help me, please.
