Can’t start Docker on Windows 10 with Hyper-V disabled

Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protection must be enabled in the BIOS

I got this error when I tried to run Docker on Windows 10. In my case, it happened when Hyper-V had been disabled to be able to run VMware Player (see my post here). You need to enable Hyper-V again with the following command, followed by a restart:

C:\> bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

This works if Hyper-V is installed but has been disabled. If it still doesn’t work, take a look here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39684974/docker-for-windows-error-hardware-assisted-virtualization-and-data-execution-p
