You cannot remove/disable the startup info panel, which was introduced in VirtualBox 7.0 to meet customer demands/needs, but in my experience it is relatively easy to mitigate the impact by clicking on the red 'x' to close those individual advisory notifications which repeatedly appear and then the Close panel 'x'. i.e. Since taking this approach on my macOS and Windows Host systems the VirtualBox Notification Panel only appears for a couple of seconds and then disappears automatically, unless a startup problem occurs resulting in a 'new' advisory message describing the problem.

In my step, win11 + ubuntu, it never auto hide. This is a very annoying UI as a end user. wish team can remove it in next release.

See: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/21916

No change is likely to be introduced in 7.0.xx, but may be considered for the next full upgrade to 7.1
