What is ISO File? An ISO file often called an ISO image file that contains an identical copy or image of data found on an optical disc, like a CD or DVD. However, for testing macOS Monterey previously we were using the VMDK file. But we have successfully found out the solution how to create the macOS ISO image file. You can use the macOS Monterey ISO image file for installing it on Windows operating system.
You can install macOS Monterey using ISO image files on Virtualization tools like VMware Workstation/Player, or VirtualBox on Windows PC. Alongside, if you want to test it on Mac PC then there are separate tools like VMware Fusion & VirtualBox which you can download and install. Easily you can run macOS Monterey for the purpose of checking its features. After installing macOS Monterey using an ISO image file you will get access to all of its features.
Installing macOS Monterey on Virtual machines will be a guest OS, but it will not work like a real device but it tries to act like an actual PC.
We successfully tested out the macOS Monterey on Virtualization tools like VMware Workstation & VirtualBox. The installation process of macOS Monterey on VirtualBox is a bit complicated but installing it on VMware Workstation is pretty much easy. Like firstly you will create a virtual machine on VMware then apply a piece of small code and at last run the installation.
