Windows 11 disable Hyper-V stops WSL?

Hi there,

FYI: Following Microsoft "workaround" for the Windows 11 incompability with VirtualBox will prevent you from using the WSl feature !

Maybe I'm the only one using both :-(

Do not hijack other threads, create your own. Choose your title carefully.

WSL2, that is. And yes, disabling Hyper-V to run Virtualbox will stop WSL2.

The Virtualbox devs continue to work on running Virtualbox under Hyper-V, but it's still a work in progress. Some VM OS types run, some don't.

... and this has nothing to do with Windows 11. The exact same facts also apply to Windows 10.
