docker on windows not working

I have tried installing docker on windows 7 (using boot2docker).
However the console just exists abruptly and I am unable to see the error, much less run any commands.

In the installation I have tried both installing and not installing the VirtualBox.
I have also tried un-installing and re-installing both docker and virtualbox. Nothing seems to work.

  • which ports should be exposed in a docker container for apache ignite?
  • Here are the console errors I see when I run boot2docker -v up:

    Please check your BIOS for a VT-x setting. According to the log you provided, there is an error: VBoxManage.exe: error: VT-x is disabled in the BIOS. (VERR_VMX_MSR_VMXON_DISABLED)

    As sangil said, the error was in your BIOS.This afternoon my laptop splash same error about VT-x dissabled on Bios
