How I've installed Docker on Windows

How I've installed Docker on Windows ?

2. The big button labeled Download (Windows) was exactly what I was looking for. The download started directly (nice, no intermediate steps). After download I obtained an exe:

3. Obviously, I run the exe file. The welcome page appears like below (personally, I've un-ticked the checkbox - is my first Docker hit :) so help to improve is faaar away). Click on Next:

4. Nothing fancy further, the usual way to set up the local path for installing the new software (I've selected D:\DockerToolbox, you can select whatever you find convenient). Click Next.

5. Well, now I was asked to select the Docker components to be installed. Since I'm not familiar with Docker I'll go with the default selections and click Next:

6. Some additional tasks very common to Windows apps. Click Next:

7. Ready to install! Final report! Click Finish!

8. And ... here we go! During installation I was agree with installing a few Oracle add-ons also.

9. Finally, it looks like I've done a good job.

Well, now I was impatient to start doing something. Actually to run the first test, running the first container:

docker run hello-world

But, where to write this? Well, I've checkout my desktop and found these icons:

Docker Quickstart Terminal sound good! Since I did not have any machine, Docker tried to install one for me named, default. Unfortunately, my enthusiasm was shot down by an error related to the virtualization disabled. It looks like Docker want this enabled!

I had a small free inspection tool installed named, Speccy. Run it, switch to CPU tab and here we go, virtualization supported, but disabled:

Ok! Restart, go to bios, find the security setting and enable it. With virtualization enabled, tried again the Docker Quickstart Terminal. Well, total success! After doing its job, Docker reported that the default machine was created and is running, so I was opened the Docker VirtualBox Manager and spot it there:

Click on Show button and finally run the hello-world container. Total success again:

This was fun! Next, I'll try to put an Ubuntu machine here.
