Boot2Docker Image (Ubuntu) Download Very Slow on Windows 8.1

I’ve just installed boot2docker on Windows 8.1

Trying to run :

  • How to mount a folder in a container as locally
  • Ubuntu docker swarm error “docker: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is the docker daemon running on this host?.”
  • Store Docker image files in external drive in El Capitan OSX
  • Jenkins Declarative Pipeline - how to display Gatling results?
  • ansible docker env var not available in container
  • docker how to add host entry to generic image available in docker repository
  • docker run ubuntu /bin/echo 'hello world'

    Download ubuntu image takes a very long time. I have 9 mbps download speed but after waiting for 10 mins, still it downloaded only following :

    4.324 MB/ 65.77 MB
    1.621 MB/ 65.77 MB
    1.080 MB/ 65.77 MB
    540.2 kb/ 65.77 MB
    pulling fs layer

    Tried many times, sometimes it exits with giving error

    Untar finished with status 1. Unexpected EOF

    I don’t know what to do. Not many questions seems to have the same error on windows. Any help would be appreciated. 🙂
