UTM overview

UTM is a full featured system emulator and virtual machine host for iOS and macOS. It is based off of QEMU. In short, it allows you to run Windows, Linux, and more on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad

UTM employs Apple's Hypervisor virtualization framework to run ARM64 operating systems on Apple Silicon at near native speeds. On Intel Macs, x86/x64 operating system can be virtualized. In addition, lower performance emulation is available to run x86/x64 on Apple Silicon as well as ARM64 on Intel. For developers and enthusiasts, there are dozens of other emulated processors as well including: ARM32, MIPS, PPC, and RISC-V. Your Mac can now truly run anything.

Features:
  • Full system emulation (MMU, devices, etc) using QEMU
  • 30+ processors supported including x86_64, ARM64, and RISC-V
  • VGA graphics mode using SPICE and QXL
  • Text terminal mode
  • USB devices
  • JIT based acceleration using QEMU TCG
  • Frontend designed from scratch for macOS 11 and iOS 11+ using the latest and greatest APIs
  • Create, manage, run VMs directly from your device

Probeer Windows XP te installeren maar krijg steeds een foutmelding. Kan de ontwikkelaar niet benaderen om te vragen wat er fout gaat.

Be sure your visit the developer's website in order to understand exactly what this is capable of running. Emulation ≠ Virtualization in several profound ways. Forget about running GPU intensive anything in either case running Windows. There ARE benefits worth paying for from Parallels and VMWare. IOW: Do your homework.

This version is really old. It's better to use the Mac Store version as that's updated from Github.

UTM is a great Demo for showing that Windows 10 can run on an M1 Mac. It's 800x600 resolution, however, not all that practical. It really needs at least 1024x768 or 1080p.
