Hi folks
if you've KVM and you are unsure what "Virtual CPU" to choose for running W11 or upgrading to W11 from W10 and the only thing you are failing on is Unsupported CPU then simply choose "Hypervisor default" in the VM config.

Now W10 -> W11 on a VM can proceed without any problems without you having to install "New". I'd suggest for people not sure of wanting to go to W11 to try it on a VM anyway.

So from this :

Hi jimbo45,

My apologies, but the headline could have been much better. First, you are qualified high enough to not abuse the acronyms: the "keyboard, video and mouse" is definitely not the sense you mean. We are not a Linux society, are we? Second, another word you used is quite uncommon in English: only a probable derivative is mentioned in Wiktionary. Please, try to be more technically correct.

jimbo45, thanks for the info.

Can't resist adding my two cents here: To me, it seemed very apparent that the KVM you are referencing is a "Kernel-based Virtual Machine", especially since you have referenced this in many previous posts. Since I really don't work with Linux, I had to spend all of 5 seconds looking it up the first time I encountered this acronym. Internet search is my friend :).

Like it or not, a lot of people working with Windows work in mixed environments, so tips related to the use of Windows in such environments are very much welcome.

So, once again, thanks for sharing this helpful, technically correct information :).

Obviously he isnt talking about a KVM switch for a keyboard and mouse. "your" interpretation of what he meant is flawed, not his usage.

By your username and your "usage" of english indicates english is your second language. If so, you should refrain from being critical of english use.

If your username is indicative of being russian, would you like it if someone told you that your russian stinks?

Food for thought (hope you understand that english expression)

Really come on mate, Most posts i see you make are you telling people what to do and coming over the top of anyone else as if they don't matter. It isn't the first time either.
Wrap it, Stop insulting people. Please try to be technically nicer to people and have a little respect.
Its a community forum, Not his/our job. People don't get paid to help others so they certainly aint gonna put up with you're crap for free.
Oh and il add "My apologies" just so that makes whatever is said ok. Not.

Probably took him more time to complain and cause a fuss than it would have to have googled it.
I am gonna start making gramatical errors on poorpus now when dealing with him xD Not that im Grammatically correct all the time well because its a forum and not University paper xD

Hi folks

perhaps I should have said KVM/QEMU -- but since we are on the Virtualisation section of the Forum I assumed that people following the posts / threads would have realized that I was referring to Virtual Machines rather than a simple KVM switch.

Many people do work in mixed OS environments and I can't see anything wrong in helping people using VM's in such an environment to investigate using perfectly adequate hardware to upgrade to W11 without requiring expensive hardware upgrades at the present time.

I'd love to see if fiddling the CPU to get W11 VM's to upgrade from W10 run on HYPER-V hosts is possible as well -- why not. Surely this section of the Forum is on getting Windows (and probably W11) specifically to run as a Virtual machine no matter what the HOST system is.

Cheers
jimbo

This will show you how not in the know i am with this.
Maybe a sidestep in topic but just a quick question if thats cool, I have win 11 ofc running fine etc etc, I've always been interested in running dual boot/virtualisation of MacOs, Is it possible? Or just not worth the hassle?

Hi there

@Devlin1888

I'm not a Mac user although I believe Parallels which is VM software allowing VM's to run on Mac computers can run Windows VM's -- although it's paid for software. I've zero experience on this one though.


As for running a MAC OS as a VM -- there are a few hacks around but the Mac OS is proprietary and by all accounts those who have tried running a Mac OS VM don't get very satisfactory results - especially as the type of hardware that can be connected is controlled by Apple and "Virtual Drivers" for these are likely to be non-existent or poorly "reverse engineered" at best. hings might have changed these days but I have 0% info on this stuff.

Of course I understood this, maybe not immediately, but anyway, and if you noticed, Wikipedia article I cited also has a reference to this (other) meaning. It wouldn't be a problem at all, but recently on this forum was a quite long discussion about usage of acronyms. And most of participants agreed that only the most common abbreviation (OS, CPU, RAM, HDD...) should be freely used without first explanation. You may remember that discussion too. Again, this thread is placed in specific area, but it also can be seen on the main page in the common list. With some respect to non-proficient people, the uncommon acronym used in the headline may be explained in the text... That's all what I meant.

I just dont understand how people can't use google. It takes literally seconds. Acronyms are a thing for a reason.

I have macOS Monterey running on VMWare, it's OK as I have the resources on the host machine to chuck at it but it's far from being polished. Stuff like iMessages don't work. There are additional scripts to add to the VM according to what CPU the host has AMD or Intel.
