Docker inside Windows guest virtual machine

I use Debian Jessie as a VirtualBox host.
I have a Windows 7 virtual machine guest, what I use for development purposes.
I want to install docker.
In order to install docker for Windows I need Boot2docker.exe.
Boot2docker itself is a VirtualBox virual machine.
It requires enable VT-x.
That doesn’t seem to work.
VirtualBox error message:

VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)

E_FAIL (0x80004005)
IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6}

    You want to run Docker client on your Windows development VM. Now you want to create a boot2docker linux VM inside the windows VM to run the docker deamon on. I think it’s better to run the docker deamon on your Debian host system and let the docker client talk to the host system.


    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
