Drive Setup isn't finding any disks in UTM
« on: August 26, 2023, 01:33:48 PM »
When I tried installing MacOS 9.2.1 in UTM, (which is a GUI for QEMU) the setup said it couldn't find any destination disk. I ran drive setup and THAT couldn't find anything either. So can someone help me? Thx.

Wrong forum. We deal with real hardware here, not emulators.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

Don't try to do the installation. Use a ready-made virtual machine template from the gallery.
