We know very well that macOS and Windows are a priori incompatible systems due to their file systems, while Windows uses NTFS, macOS uses APFS, the file system is the basis for all read and write operations with which you can have access to data and libraries. As they are different, it will be impossible to use macOS applications and elements on Windows and vice versa..

 

To help mitigate this impact, we have a utility called UTM which helps us virtualize Windows 7/8/10/11 in macOS with all its functions as if we were in front of a PC with this system.

 

 

What is UTM
UTM is an emulator for virtual machine systems and hosts that integrates the functions of iOS and macOS. UTM is based on QEMU, which gives us the possibility of running Windows and Linux environments on a computer with macOS.

 

Some of its features are:

  • It has more than 30 compatible processors, this covers x86_64, ARM64 and RISC-V
  • Offers full system emulation (MMU, devices, etc.) via QEMU
  • JIT based acceleration using QEMU TCG
  • VGA graphics mode thanks to SPICE and QXL
  • Text terminal mode
  • Compatible with USB devices
  • Integrate a frontend designed from scratch for macOS 11 using modern APIs
  • It will be possible to create, manage and run virtual machines from the device
  • Allows you to run x86/x64 on Apple Silicon and ARM64 on Intel
  • UTM is only available for macOS and Apple platforms

 

 

TechnoWikis will explain how you can use UTM to use Windows on macOS..

 

How to install Windows on macOS with UTM

Step 46

As we can see, the installation of the utilities is automatically activated. These are a group of tools that allow the virtual machine to perform actions such as:

 

  • Video streaming
  • Clipboard Sharing
  • Image compression in multiple Spice compression algorithms such as QUIC (based on SFALIC), LZ, GLZ (history-based global dictionary)
  • Live migration
  • Multiple monitors with support to enable client screen selection
  • USB Redirection
  • Two-way audio and more

 

Step 47

There we click on “Next” to begin the installation:

Step 50

Now it will be possible to use Windows on macOS without problem:

Note
If during the installation of Windows you get error 00000428, you must go to the virtual machine configuration, there deactivate the TPM 2.0 Device box.

 

Step 51

We click on “Save” to save the changes.

This is how it is possible to use Windows to its fullest on macOS.
