It’s here. While it is a little early, and things on Apple silicon don’t always behave like we’re used to on Intel, we’re thrilled to be able to share the work we’ve been doing to prepare support for Windows 11 virtual machines on Fusion, for both Intel and Apple silicon Macs. Many new enhancements and capabilities came together to bring Windows 11 to the Mac desktop with Fusion, and while they were designed with Windows 11 in mind, the tools can be used for other VMs as well.
Fusion 22H2 Tech Preview ships with an early version of VMware's graphics drivers for Windows 11. This driver will let users adjust the display setting within Windows to deliver 4K and higher resolutions.
Additionally, the preview will be delivered as a single dmg to install Fusion on both Apple Silicon, as well as, Intel Macs.
"Organizations that deploy Fusion en-masse can use the same asset for the existing as well as the new Macs that are brought under management, and likewise users downloading from vmware.com don’t need to worry about finding the version with the right architecture for their Mac."
● Fusion will not support running VMs across different architectures. (I.e. no x86_64 VMs on M1 Macs).
● macOS virtual machines are out of scope for this release, but it’s something we’re looking into.
● Ubuntu 20.04.4 and 22.04 for arm64 are not currently booting (Ubuntu 20.04.4 builds from July 5 and onward) We are working to resolve this.
