Unable the run the Docker on Windows 10 pro

Error creating machine: Error in driver during machine creation: This computer doesn’t have VT-X/AMD-v enabled. Enabling it in the BIOS is mandatory

Can somebody help me in resolving this issue??

It means what it says. Those features (VT-x/AMD-v) are available when the CPU supports them and they are enabled in the system BIOS.

In addition, if you’re running in a hypervisor/Virtual Machine, the hypervisor must also support the features. In some versions of hypervisors and cloud hosts this feature may not be enabled by default, and older hypervisors may not support them at all.

So

  • Check that your CPU supports the feature
  • Check that host BIOS allows and enables feature
  • If running in a VM, ensure your VM software (hypervisor) both supports the feature and is enabled for use with your guests VMs…

In W10, once you see Virtualization: Enabled in Task Manager/Performance:CPU summary screen (see screenshot), that is a very strong indication that these features are enabled and you should be good to go.
