  • 1.  How do I install MacOS Virtual Machine in Fusion 13?

    Posted Jul 01, 2023 05:33 PM

    Hi folks, trying to install a MacOS 13 Ventura virtual machine on MacOS Ventura. I select the "Install macOS Ventura.app" file, but then get presented with the "Choose operating system" screen where MacOS isn't an option… Any OS I choose here, starting the VM doesn't work and just hangs on boot. Previously, it correctly detected MacOS and proceed to the next screen. Is this a bug or is there a workaround? Cheers!

    Intel processor or Apple processor?

    Given you are seeing these prompts from Fusion, it appears that you are trying to virtualize macOS on an Apple Silicon (M1/M2) Mac.

    You might want to look at the Unofficial Fusion 13 for Apple Silicon Companion Guide https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Fusion-Documents/The-Unofficial-Fusion-13-for-Apple-Silicon-Companion-Guide/ta-p/2939907 (referenced ad nauseam in this form), the VMware Fusion 13 documentation. or the VMware guest compatibility lists.

    Fusion 13 on M1/M2 Macs does not support virtualization of ANY macOS version. The Companion document lists some alternatives (including *free* options that don't require you to pay a dime or euro to Parallels) if you need macOS virtualization on Apple Silicon.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! That answers my question, should have looked harder. Have an awesome day.
