Error while installing Docker for windows 10

I tried installing Docker for Windows 10. But I get the following error:

Unable to stop: The running command stopped because the preference variable "ErrorActionPreference" or common parameter is set to Stop: The specified module 'Hyper-V' was not loaded because no valid module file was found in any module directory. at , : line 79 at Docker.Backend.HyperV.RunScript(String action, Dictionary`2 parameters) in C:\gopath\src\github.com\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Backend\HyperV.cs:line 177 at Docker.Backend.ContainerEngine.Linux.DoStop() in C:\gopath\src\github\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Backend\ContainerEngine\Linux.cs:line 280 at Docker.Backend.ContainerEngine.Linux.Start(Settings settings) in C:\gopath\src\github\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Backend\ContainerEngine\Linux.cs:line 122 at Docker.Core.Pipe.NamedPipeServer.<>c__DisplayClass9_0.b__0(Object[] parameters) in C:\gopath\src\github\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Core\pipe\NamedPipeServer.cs:line 47 at Docker.Core.Pipe.NamedPipeServer.RunAction(String action, Object[] parameters) in C:\gopath\src\github\docker\pinata\win\src\Docker.Core\pipe\NamedPipeServer.cs:line 145

Docker for windows is compatible with only particular versions of windows 10. For example windows 10 home will not run docker for windows. Check if the host is Windows 10 Home edition. If it is, go download and install Docker Toolbox for Windows, which includes up-to-date Docker and some environment components.

Docker for Windows relies on native Hyper-V to create virtual machine. But Win 10 Home edition does not have it.

RUN cmd as administrator then check use command bcdedit to check this line hypervisorlaunchtype Auto

it should be either auto or on.
if it’s off then set it to auto with the following command
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

then restart windows and dockers should start properly provided that your CPU virtualization is enabled in your bios

I hope this helps!
