Well I had an SSD and 16GB of RAM laying around.. clonezilla'd and dropped it in. All my problems solved. Slow pc = unreliable.Auto logon there is a password but it is not required.
CPU is i5 3570 w/ 4GB RAM
CPU normally hovers around 20-40% without this load. RAM 1GB
Maybe the speed is related to my HDDs they are ancient too. This was some old PC that hadn't been used for a few years, I swapped out the CPU from a scavenge seller. All hardware tested through prime95 and stable, but it's definitely slow. Very, very, slow
Docker service set to automatic start, no issue, windows 10 pro.. but i suspect would've been fine with home.
