How To Install a Windows 11 VM on a QNAP NAS


For a FREE 1 year trial license of ANY QNAP licensed software, please email [email protected], with your QID (The email account associated with your QNAP NAS) and which software you’d like to trial. The license should appear in your account within 48 hours. Virtualization Station adds incredible versatility to your NAS. From using your NAS as a PC by connecting a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI display to creating private virtual networks between VMs, you can also use USB and GPU* pass-through to provide your VMs and NAS with greater functionality and performance. With built-in data protection features such as Snapshots, VMs can easily be protected against failure and data loss.

Virtualization Station supports various modern and legacy operating systems, from Microsoft Windows XP to Windows Server, as well as popular UNIX-like systems such as Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS, FreeBSD and Sun Solaris.

A built-in Access Control List (ACL) allows you to easily manage access to specific virtual machines. You can assign either control or view-only permissions of each VM to specific users.

Virtualization Station allows you to centrally monitor and manage every VM while allocating resources such as CPU, memory, and storage capacity.

Virtualization Station allows you to access USB devices* connected to the NAS from one or many VMs. GPU pass-through is also supported** by specific models with suitable power supplies to allow the usage of a compatible graphics card to empower VMs with higher processing capabilities and OpenGL and DirectX support.

  1. I use 2H22 version iso file but it said the vm doesn't match the requirements.
    I guess it's because the TPM requirement, what could I do ?

  2. You are not showing how you prepare the Virtual folder. I have TVS-h1688X (QuTS Hero), and i followed your constructions up to choosing Windows 11 Pro, and then i get a message saying "This PC doesn't meet the minimum system requirement. Can you please help?

  3. Hi Craig. I had tried to do a clean install of Windows 11 in virtualization station on my TS-473A, and Windows reported that it did not meet the hardware requirements. The only thing I can figure is this nas does not have a graphics card function, even though my main system does. Any guidance, please ?

  11. Is there any need to install additional drivers? virtio? guest tools?

  12. Thanks for the info Craig. I had tried to update a Windows 10 VM in virtualization station on my TS-1277 and Windows reported that it did not meet the hardware requirements. I am downloading the Windows 11 ISO and starting from scratch as you did and I am hoping that I have better luck.

  13. No problem here except I have no audio sound when in my VM. I have enabled the audio option but don't hear anything. Using Windows 11 Pro release that came out about 5 days ago. Ideas?

  14. Can you support gpu acceleration for NAS that can't insert a video card? Linux station does supporting gpu acceleration and runs smoothly but i need to run windows

  15. Hi Craig – thanks for this. Do you think you’d be able to do a tutorial on setting up VMs with gpu passthrough? I’ve got a similar Nas to this and I always intended to set it up to run a high end VM with acceleration to use as my daily office machine.

    I’d be interested in both running it from the device’s HDMI port and also over a Remote Desktop type setup. Key for me though is I want it to feel like a full blown desktop pc rather than something that would become annoying to use (when you use the v-station‘s RD it’s quite clunky and unaccelerated).
