I recently downloaded a trial version of VMWare Fusion 6, in order to be able to run Windows on Mac. I then purchased a student discounted Windows 8 pro upgrade, and downloaded it as a setup.exe. The question is now - how to I get it onto the virtual machine? There is no way I can find to download a .iso from Microsoft, I can get a disc, but my Mac does not have a disc drive. I have tried to convert the .exe into an .iso using disk utility, the command hdiutil makehybrid -o -iso -joliet in the terminal, and using imgburn on a pc. All of those options managed to create a .iso, but when using it for the virtual machine "the operating system could not be found". My pc is too old to run the windows setup on anyway. Is there another option? Or have I just not configured the virtual machine properly? I used "install from disc or image", then chose "use another disc or disc image", and browsed to the .iso. Will enough memory be allocated automatically, or do I need to create a custom virtual machine? Or did I just mess up the whole .exe -> .iso process?
