Installing DockerToolbox VMWare Windows 7 Guest


(Kearnest) #1

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I’m having to test DockerToolbox 1.12.0 on a Windows 7 VMware image. It installs fine, but when I go to run the Docker software inside the image, it prompts that the Computer doesn’t have VT-X/AMD-v Enabled.

I’ve checked the hardware and VT-x is enabled in the bios of the host machine, but VMware doesn’t have a Bios Option to enable it within that bios.

I did check and change the Preferred Mode of Virtualization engine to Specifically the Intel VT-x/AMD-v, even restarting the guest OS did not help.

I’ve tried searching the internet didn’t see anyone having the exact same issue.

Thanks
