I am trying to use docker in Windows 10 Home.
During install (in the Virtual Box part) I get an error:
Cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different name.
This can be closed and the installation continues.
However, when I click the quick start (
start.sh) I get the following error:
Starting "default"... (default) Check network to re-create if needed... Unable to start the VM: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe startvm default --type headless failed: VBoxManage.exe: error: The virtual machine 'default' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). More details may be available in 'C:\Users*****.docker\machine\machines\default\default\Logs\VBoxHardening.log VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine Looks like something went wrong in step ´Checking status on default´... Press any key to continue...
This error is already as an Issue for toolbox but the solutions that worked for some people didn't for me:
Uninstall Virtual Box and reinstall using the following parameter in an Administrator command prompt:
Note: the latest VirtualBox version might be different:
c:\downloads\VirtualBox-6.0.0-127566-Win.exe -msiparams NETWORKTYPE=NDIS5
I've managed to surpass this error with the help of this answer:
Step 1: Download and install https://www.virtualbox.org/attachment/ticket/14040/VBox-Win10-fix-14040.exe and leave it running in the background
Step 2: Head to the Virtual box program files (probably:
Step 3: Go to compatibility for these three .exe ( Virtualbox.exe, VBoxHeadless.exe, and VBoxManage.exe ) and choose windows 7.
Run quick start and it works.
I'm not sure this was solely responsible for the solution because before this I also did:
Previous answers did not work for me. I uninstalled Docker Toolbox from Win10 Home. Also removed(all files too) the "default" VM created in Virtualbox.
On DockerToolbox-19.03.1.exe -> Right Click -> Troubleshoot compatibility. Ran compatibility check. Ran the installer in Adminstrator mode.
Then ran "Docker Quickstart Terminal" shortcut and everything worked fine.
It simply means "Starting "default"... (default) Check network to re-create if needed... Unable to start the VM: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe startvm default --type headless "
which results in
and now solution is to check whether hypervisor is enabled if enabled swich it to off and restart host machine mentioned in :
