Introduction

Windows 7 was one of the most popular operating systems and a significant contributor to Microsofts success story. Even today many people miss its stability and wide spread use. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of installing Windows 7 inside a virtual machine on your Mac. Whether you need to run a specific Windows program or just prefer the Windows interface, this tutorial will equip you to set up your own virtual Windows environment. By the end, you’ll be able to seamlessly switch between macOS and Windows 7 on your Mac, all within a single machine.

Requirements

The following is a list of items needed to complete the installation successfully:

1) VMware Fusion 13: You can download a free trial from the VMware website.

2) Windows 7 Installation Media: You’ll need a Windows 7 installation disc or a valid ISO file. Make sure to acquire a legal copy of Windows 7, as VMware Fusion doesn’t provide operating systems.

3) Mac with an Intel Processor: VMware Fusion 13 only supports Intel-based Macs. Check the VMware Fusion website for details about support for M1 / M2 based Macs.

4) Minimum 4GB RAM: While 4GB is the minimum, 8GB or more is recommended for smoother performance, especially if you plan to run other applications alongside the virtual machine.
