WTF docker in windows
Couldn't open my virtualbox

    looks like you can't have both in windows. I don't miss virtualbox at all. using docker and wsl is a blessing

    you guys really are all too dense to startpage/google or read all the warnings during install, this is now the 100th rant by now jesus christ: docker toolkit on windows.

    Check motherboard's hyper threading enabled in bios.

    No, windows can not handle multiple applications taking over the cpu's virtualisation.
    Pick one.

    At least you managed to disable Hyper-V.... right?

    Docker uses Hyper-V, configure Virtualbox to use Hyper-V internally, too.

    @C0D4 can you run multiple hypervisors at once on Linux? I'm not sure and a quick search doesn't give me any results.
    I would say it's difficult/impossible though considering that hypervisors use special CPU features too.

    Edit: you can if you only give hardware virtualization support to one hypervisor and have the others running in pure software mode. Which makes sense. Still not confirmed though, will keep looking.

    @RememberMe I haven't tried.

    Windows can handle multiple VM's or Containers but not multiple applications.

    @M1sf3t your issue is alpine specific, not in relation to running docker on windows as this was all about.

    I have no context of what issues you had though and probably was just unlucky beginners dive, happens.

    @M1sf3t if you're on windows, you really don't want to be using the regular download docker they offer, since it breaks vbox, might as well make a Linux VM then and run docker in there or the much simpler route for native linux'esque: docker toolkit.

    @M1sf3t yeah very custom made issues basically lol

    @M1sf3t what was the VM guest?

    @M1sf3t well you didn't quite pick the easiest environment to do anything, if you wanted a lightweight guest, you could've used same alpine as guest to host docker :)
