Oracle VirtualBox users can now finally use Windows 11 after the company addressed a known issue that caused virtual machine failures whenever Hyper-V or the Windows Hypervisor were installed.

The failures were the reason Microsoft set up safeguards for Windows 11, essentially preventing the users from upgrading. Since Oracle fixed these issues, Microsoft announced it has now removed the safeguards.

"Oracle has resolved this issue in VirtualBox 6.1.28 and later,” Microsoft said. “To remove the safeguard hold on your device, you will need to update to VirtualBox 6.1.28 or later."

Oracle VirtualBox 7 Beta adds support for Windows 11
Oracle released the first beta version of the upcoming virtualization software VirtualBox 7 this week. The new version is available as a test version for Windows, Linux and Mac devices.

One of the main improvements of VirtualBox 7 is that it supports Windows 11 officially. VirtualBox users who tried to install Windows 11 in previous versions of VirtualBox may have run into hardware compatibility verification issues. While there are ways around those, it has been a burden.
