This question about running VirtualBox or other virtualisation on Apple Silicon has come up several times:
- Can I run Virtualbox on new M1 Macbook Air?
- How to enable hardware virtualization on MacBook Pro 2020 M1?
- Virtual Box error "Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Hadoop" on MacOS Big Sur M1 chip
The quick answer is no but we have made several attempts to suggest ones that do work. As these are lists and are about the current state they need updating so I suppose are off-topic. However I think we will get asked often enough that we should have an answer so that we maintain it in one place.
I remembered I had answered it and so went to my answer and updated it with details from here. Unfortunately the question I answered is the first given above and has been closed as off-topic (which does seem odd to me)
How do we get a canonical question?
