Verify that you have the following minimum system requirements for installing and using Fusion.

  • Any Mac with a 64-bit Intel processor. Compatible with Core 2 Duo, Xeon, i3, i5, i7, or later processors.

  • Mac OS X 10.9.0 or later for the host OS. Mac OS X 10.10 or later is recommended.

  • Operating system installation media (disk or disk image) for virtual machines. Windows operating systems are available separately from Microsoft and other retailers.

    Important:

    Fusion does not provide any operating systems for installation on virtual machines that you create with Fusion. You must provide the operating system installation media.
