No obvious error when Hyper-V is not enabled on the host #921

Windows Pro has Hyper-V disabled out of the box, and it has to be enabled explicitly. At this moment, multipass launch on Windows fails with timeout and doesn't tell us what's wrong.

It would be nice if multipass tells us Hyper-V is not enabled and point us to some documents like the following link from a user experience point of view.

Yes, totally. We're planning in #775 to implement extensive "health" checks for exactly this reason.

Before, we were just enabling Hyper-V ourselves (and checking your Windows version is enough), but now we've added VirtualBox support that wasn't an option any more.
