UTM (virtualization for macOS)

This is how I run Windows on macOS.

The name stands for “Universal Turing Machine” (reference, which links to this comment).

  • Get UTM from GitHub
  • Click “Fetch latest Windows installer…” in UTM to get CrystalFetch from the AppStore, which’ll let you get the ISO for Windows
  • Make sure to follow the guide:
    • UNCHECK (as in “do not check”) “Import VHDX Image” or you will get driver issues when trying to install the OS
    • You’ll go through the CD/DVD thing by pressing enter as it’s booting up
