Docker Toolbox & Windows Server 2012


(Peter Bata) #1

Hello all. I am having difficulty installing Docker Toolbox on my Proliant DL360 G5 running Windows Server 2012 R2. Can someone tell me if this can be done. Thank you.

What part are you getting stuck on?

Good day Jeff. Thank you for the prompt reply. My apologies for being so vague in my OP. I will try attaching two screenshots that might shed a little light on the issue(s) that I am having. Both errors appear to be related to enabling bios virtualization. Of course, I do have it enabled as I have no problems running VM’s in Hyper-V.

Unfortunately, you cannot run on a computer that has Hyper-V enabled - Hyper-V has been written to assume it has exclusive use of the processor.

There are blog posts that show how to boot Windows Server with Hyper-V disabled :frowning:

Makes sense. I had a feeling that Hyper-V may have been the culprit. You certainly have cleared that up for me. Thank you so much Sven. Much appreciated. Have a good one. Peter
