Virtualbox failed to start: Raw-mode is unavailable

After the installation of Docker service on my Windows 10 Enterprise edition my Virtualbox stopped working. When I try to start a virtual machine I got “Raw-mode is unavailable courtesy of Hyper-V.” error.

Here I am adding the steps that executed to resolve this issue.

Step1. Open your windows command prompt and execute the command “bcdedit” ( Command-line tool for Managing Boot Configuration). Then you can see some information like below.

In the last you can see the “hypervisorlaunchtype” is changed to Auto.

Step2. Turnoff this “hypervisorlaunchtype” for this execute below command.

bcdedit / set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Step3. Restart your machine to load the new changes.

Yes, now go ahead and start the virtual machine!..
