Purchasing a new license - the download of the DMG an error message states "not a proper DMG".
I'm on a Mac M1 Silicon. Please HELP
Highly recommend following the instructions in the unofficial guide - anything else is outdated and probably incorrect. It's fiddly, so go slow and make sure you do all the steps in order and you'll be fine.
Definitely do not do the VHDX conversion in the official docs.
If you downloaded that ISO from Microsoft’s web pages, it is not the right one for a M1/M2 Mac. The ones that Microsoft allows you to download are for Windows 11 x64 only - which only can be used on machines with Intel or AMD chips. The M1/M2 chips in Macs are neither of these.
Use the instructions and tools recommended in the Unofficial Companion Guide https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Fusion-Documents/The-Unofficial-Fusion-13-for-Apple-Silicon... to obtain a Windows 11 ARM ISO, and then use it to install your Windows 11 ARM VM.
