Can VirtualBox run operating systems designed for ARM processors?


For example, can I run Android, which is mostly run on ARM processors, run on VirtualBox on x86 Intel processors?

I am aware of Android x86, however, that is not a viable solution.

  • No. VirtualBox Wiki: Status: Guest OSes and Getting Support for Oracle VM VirtualBox.

    But there are Android emulators available e.g. as part of Android Studio.

    ARM is fundamentally different from x86. It would need to emulate the entire CPU which is something VirtualBox currently doesn't do.
