The following computers do not support Virtualisation and thus Virtual Machine software such as VMware Workstation and VirtualBox cannot be installed on them:

  • Google Chromebooks
  • 2020 M1 chip Mac computers, including the M1 MacBook Air, the 13" M1 MacBook Pro, and the M1 Mac Mini

Students who have these computers should use the browser-based NDG labs solution, which you can learn more about how to access here in our FAQ.
