Note for running minikube on Windows.

Minikube is a tricky beast on Windows.

There are several options to run minikube on Windows:

  1. WSL2
  2. HyperV
  3. VirtualBox

The easiest option is to run minikube with VirtualBox.

You can download Virtual Box from here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

To run VirtualBox, you need to disable HyperV:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

You can start minikube with VirtualBox with:

minikube delete
minikube start --vm --driver=virtualbox

If you see more errors, check if you have enough space in your device as that's usually one the most common issues.
