Hello to all. I am an old age pensioner who just loves to draw on his graphics tablet which is a huion. I could use this tablet on Windows XP but my PC died and I had to have a new one which came with Windows 7 installed.Windows 7 does not support the Huion tablet and I was wondering if I could load Linux into Virtualbox would it support Huion Tablets .Thankin you George2405

It does not work that way. A guest can not access the real hardware so with out windows driver I don't think it will work. I would try dual booting instead.

Hi Michaelk and thank you for the information and your quick repl. I have read of some problems with dual booting so seeing im not technically minded I don't think I will be trying that.
Thanking you Trenuggo.

Dual booting with a Windows 7 PC is a lot easier than Windows 8 due to all the secure boot stuff.

You can set up a dual boot with a second internal or USB drive so windows drive remains unchanged.

Hi Michaelk I thank you for your trouble but I have no idea how to dual boot so I will have to use my Wacom. Thanking you Trenuggo
