To run Docker on Windows 10 Home Edition you need to do two things:
Step 1: Check if the Hardware Virtualization is Enabled
If not enabled, refer https://thewebspark.com/2019/04/02/how-to-enable-virtualization-in-bios-of-windows-10-home-hp-systems-solved/
Step 2: Install Docker Toolbox instead of Docker Desktop
Installation link: https://github.com/docker/toolbox/releases
Docker Toolbox adds the following software to your machine:
- Docker Client for Windows
- Docker Toolbox management tool and ISO
- Oracle VM VirtualBox
- Git MSYS-git UNIX tools
Download the Docker toolbox from ttps://github.com/docker/toolbox/releases and follow the below images to install it!
Voila! The Docker has successfully Installed!
