I am running on Windows 10 and using a VagrantFile, I up the Vagrant running using Administrator mode but am stuck at not able to import Ubuntu/trusty64. Hope someone can advise me how to import it.

C:\Users\Karen.Goh\VMLinux>vagrant up Bringing machine 'default' up with 'hyperv' provider... ==> default: Verifying Hyper-V is enabled... ==> default: Verifying Hyper-V is accessible... ==> default: Box 'ubuntu/trusty64' could not be found. Attempting to find and install... default: Box Provider: hyperv default: Box Version: >= 0 ==> default: Loading metadata for box 'ubuntu/trusty64' default: URL: https://vagrantcloud.com/ubuntu/trusty64 The box you're attempting to add doesn't support the provider you requested. Please find an alternate box or use an alternate provider. Double-check your requested provider to verify you didn't simply misspell it.

If you're adding a box from HashiCorp's Vagrant Cloud, make sure the box is released.

Name: ubuntu/trusty64 Address: https://vagrantcloud.com/ubuntu/trusty64 Requested provider: [:hyperv]


As you can see on https://app.vagrantup.com/boxes/search,

that box is only available for VirtualBox. If you want Ubuntu for HyperV, use the right selection choices to check what is available:

Another solution is to install VirtualBox, that opens a lot more choices (never heard of HyperV as a VM support app, possibly Windows-only, which would restrict the audience).

  • Thanks. I installed VirtualBox and disabled HyperV in Windows 10 and it is working now. – Karen Goh Feb 22 '19 at 13:42
  • Upvoting is fine, but accepting is better (shows people that there is at least one valid answer to the question)(this is the V icon next to the votes for you). – xenoid Feb 22 '19 at 14:19
