My VirtualBox host is a Windows 8.1 box and I used two VMs: a Windows 7 Development Box (I tried Windows 8.1 in a VM and the performance was terrible) and a Ubuntu Server 14.04.2.
For the most part it was pretty much documented here. My only hiccup was that I had to do a “Restore Packages” to get Grunt to install its packages, this didn’t happen with a “Rebuild” as I would expect. I set my “Custom Docker Host” settings like this:
