1.3. Improved Integration with Microsoft Hyper-V

Oracle VM VirtualBox can now be used on a Windows host where Hyper-V is running. This is an experimental feature.

No configuration is required. Oracle VM VirtualBox detects Hyper-V automatically and uses Hyper-V as the virtualization engine for the host. The CPU icon in the VM window status bar indicates that Hyper-V is being used. See Using Hyper-V with Oracle VM VirtualBox.


When using this feature, you might experience significant Oracle VM VirtualBox performance degradation on some host systems.
