Docker Quickstart Terminal. Unable to start the VM


After restarting machine and opening the Docker Quickstart Terminal, I get the following error:

Unable to start the VM: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe startvm default --type headless failed:
VBoxManage.exe: error: Raw-mode is unavailable courtesy of Hyper-V. (VERR_SUPDRV_NO_RAW_MODE_HYPER_V_ROOT)
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

Details: 00:00:02.064418 Power up failed (vrc=VERR_SUPDRV_NO_RAW_MODE_HYPER_V_ROOT, rc=E_FAIL (0X80004005))
Looks like something went wrong in step ┬┤Checking status on default┬┤... Press any key to continue...

Enable Hyper V as following:

Run a command prompt as administrator and execute:

reboot and

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Looks like you need to disable Hyper-V. You can do it from Windows Features option or command line.

dism /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V

reboot and

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

The above answer for me is working.

As suggested above in Prakash's advice, this is what worked for me: Go to 'Turn Windows features on & off' in the Control Panel:


Uncheck 'Windows Hypervisor Platform'

enter image description here

Reboot and reverse the process, enabling 'Windows Hypervisor Platform.'

After following the answer left by Bub Espinja, these were my steps.

Run Powershell/CMD as Administrator and enter

dism /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V

Reboot, then enter

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

However, I ran into some difficulty so I came back here and followed an additional step left by Prakash.

Go to Control Panel [Category View] -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off

Ensure 'Windows Hypervisor Platform' is not checked. Expand 'Hyper-V' and enable 'Hyper-V Platform'

Ensure 'Windows Hypervisor Platform' is not checked. Expand 'Hyper-V' and enable 'Hyper-V Platform'

After rebooting, I was able to run 'Docker Quickstart Terminal' and subsequently docker run hello-world.

i also faced the same can follow these steps to resolve--

  1. open C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox edit start file as ${DOCKER_MACHINE}" create -d virtualbox --virtualbox-no-vtx-check $PROXY_ENV "${VM}

    when docker toolbox was installed it will be as ${DOCKER_MACHINE}" create -d virtualbox $PROXY_ENV "${VM}

    check image of start file

  2. run bcdedit in powershell as admin mode if u see hyper vision launcher type status OFF then it's fine and if it is AUTO then run bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off to change status to OFF

  3. Removed all temporary files using key combination win+R type temp and delete all the files

  4. Reboot your machine

  5. open dockerquickstart it should work fine.
