Oracle develops new driver for VirtualBox which is compatible with Windows 11 TPM requirements
Microsoft has made changes to the virtualization hardware policy in the Windows 11 update released this week, that is, virtual machine installations also implement the hardware requirements of physical machines.
Some virtual machines such as Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware Workstation Pro support physical TPM or virtualized TPM to meet the requirements.
However, because the VirtualBox virtual machine does not support the TPM module, Windows 11 cannot be used normally. Oracle has begun to release a solution to this problem.
Oracle’s solution is to develop a new driver to pass through the host’s security module, which means that the host can be used normally if the host has a security chip.
At present, Oracle has begun to submit new drivers to achieve the interoperability of the host’s security modules, but users may still have to wait while they are still in the development and testing stage.
Oracle did not elaborate on this issue, so we don’t know whether Oracle will support the virtualized trusted platform module.
The reason for this is that if the virtualized trusted platform module is not supported, the host must have a security module. After all, VirtualBox is used to pass through the host TPM.
If it can support the virtualized trusted platform module, the situation will be much better, so that even older servers can still run Windows 11.
