Are there any downloadable ISO images for Big Sur I could use for VM Fusion?

Thanks

On a related question, I'm not sure, once I create the mac os 11 virtual machine, how I could restore a backup to it. I'm just thinking about possible problems before doing the VM install...so perhaps it's very intuitive.

As I understand it, you need an ISO image to create a virtual machine. Is that not correct?
Fusion does the required magic.

Restoring a backup: How was your backup created? At a minimum you can use Finder to drag files from the host to the client.

You should go ahead and create a Big Sur virtual machine just for testing. You can delete it at any time and start again.

And make sure you are using the latest version of Fusion. What is your host macOS version?
