Required feature

My apologies if this is misplaced, but after numerous searches, I couldn’t find this covered anywhere.

I’m trying to run any container. When I do so, I get this error:

Error response from daemon: container b738c982354b763033c9fcb81fde7431d49cd393bf5959add0baee2ae1f177c6 encountered an error during CreateContainer: failure in a Windows system call: The virtual machine could not be started because a required feature is not installed.

Every article I see talks about “not having hyper-v”, but that’s not the error I’m getting, and hyper-v is working fine as far as I can tell.

Any help is appreciated.

Did you actually make and start a Hyper-V VM? I was able to open Hyper-V and make a VM, but when trying to start it, Hyper-V said HW virtualization was probably disabled in BIOS. After having fixed this, I could both start the Hyper V VM and run my windows Docker container.
