Unable to start docker on BigSur

image

Hello, I’m unable to launch Docker desktop on my MacOS. The error message is:
Environment error
FAIL: Hypervisor framework fails

This is not the actual MacOS, however all other applications on my computer work file, including GPU acceleration.
I also confirmed that:

bash-3.2$ sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features
machdep.cpu.features: FPU VME DE PSE TSC MSR PAE MCE CX8 APIC SEP MTRR PGE MCA CMOV PAT PSE36 CLFSH DS ACPI MMX FXSR SSE SSE2 SS HTT TM PBE SSE3 PCLMULQDQ DTES64 MON DSCPL VMX EST TM2 SSSE3 FMA CX16 TPR PDCM SSE4.1 SSE4.2 x2APIC MOVBE POPCNT AES PCID XSAVE OSXSAVE SEGLIM64 TSCTMR AVX1.0 RDRAND F16C

bash-3.2$ sysctl kern.hv_support
kern.hv_support: 1

I tried installing docker through brew, then verify the following:
bash-3.2$ docker --version
Docker version 20.10.8, build 3967b7d28e
bash-3.2$ docker-compose --version
docker-compose version 1.29.2, build unknown
bash-3.2$ docker-machine --version
docker-machine version 0.16.2, build bd45ab1

However, anything I tried so far leads me to nowhere. Here’s an example:
bash-3.2$ docker run -d -p 80:80 --name webserver nginx
docker: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?.
See ‘docker run --help’.

So, please help me.

Specifics of my machine:
Hackintosh, 11.2.3 off of Gigabyte X299 Designare EX (VT-d enabled); 3.1 GHz 16-Core i9960x; RX Vega 64/8Gb GPU; 64Gb memory.
