    1. Hi there, I’m investigating various virtual machine emulation methods, and I seem to have a different problem with each one. For this one, do you know why I wouldn’t have any sound, unless I use a USB audio device? It’s saying no audio devices are installed, I tried to reset the sound card, but that didn’t work

    2. Thanks for the information. I have to say, I am new to the M1 hardware and some of its quirks, so this has been (and still is) quite a challenge.
      I have been able to get to the VM install process, but then run into an issue I haven't been able to get past.
      I am getting "A media driver your computer needs is missing. This couild be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now."

    3. Was able to follow your instructions on installing Fusion Professional Version e.x.p (19431034) since I recently moved to an M1 Mac and my Fusion 11 was inoperable. I also followed the instructions to create an ISO (22000.1_MULTI_ARM64_EN-US.ISO) using UUP and Homebrew. (All new to me, and very instructive) However, now that I have a working Win11 VM, I realized (duh!) that I can't access any of the programs I formerly had in my older VMs running Win10. Can anyone suggest a way to migrate those from a VM which won't run under the new Fusion?

    4. Hello Andrew, impressive video, thanks a lot, very useful. i was wondering if is possible to do the exact same installation not with Windows 11 but Windows 10? i tried downloading the win10 iso, then tried the exact same steps you mentioned for windows 11 but after install process starts i get blue screen, any idea?

      thanks in advanced
