Docker for Windows on Bootcamp

(Jturinetti) #1

Hello all,

I’m working with my company’s IT department to get Docker for Windows working consistently and successfully on our Macbook Pro bootcamp laptop image, but we’re having a number of issues around virtualization and Hyper-V. I have it working successfully on my Macbook Pro, but it’s not working consistently on other Macbook Pro models here. My laptop specs: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) 2.5 GHz Core i7 (I7-4870HQ)

Before anyone asks, I have found the post here and have read the links therein: Bootcamp running Windows - "Hardware assisted virtualization and data execution protection must be enabled in the BIOS"

The trick that got it working on my machine was the command mentioned in a comment here (command below):

  • sudo /usr/sbin/bless --device /dev/disk0s4 --setBoot /dev/disk0

However, on a newer model of MacBook Pro from mid-2015, that command does not work. Hyper-V is enabled and we have done everything correctly as far as we can tell. Is there anything else we should be trying? Any additional information would help at this point.

Version of Docker software installed: 18.03.0-ce-rc4-win57 (16511)
