Hey there, I was working for a while this weekend to try to set up Roots on Windows. I used Parallels (to install Windows 10) and followed this: Where can I find a complete tutorial for Windows? Trellis + Sage - In the end it seems like this could be fairly easy for Windows-based developers to get this set up by simply installing Virtualbox, Vagrant and then Git for Windows: https://git-for-windows.github.io/
I got all of these things installed, ran Vagrant Up (after creating my SSH Key: https://help.github.com/articles/generating-a-new-ssh-key-and-adding-it-to-the-ssh-agent/#platform-windows). Everything moves along until:
default: SSH auth method: private key
Timed out while waiting for the machine to boot. This means that
Vagrant was unable to communicate with the guest machine within
the configured (“config.vm.boot_timeout” value) time period.
If you look above, you should be able to see the error(s) that
Vagrant had when attempting to connect to the machine. These errors
are usually good hints as to what may be wrong.
If you’re using a custom box, make sure that networking is properly
working and you’re able to connect to the machine. It is a common
problem that networking isn’t setup properly in these boxes.
Verify that authentication configurations are also setup properly,
If the box appears to be booting properly, you may want to increase
the timeout (“config.vm.boot_timeout”) value.
Does any one have any preliminary thoughts as to what might be causing this?
