Is anyone running BIGIP-VE Lab Edition on a MacBook Pro M1?

I am currently running my lab on an older Intel processor MacBook Pro with VMware Fusion but they don't support x86 guests with the M1.

any ideas?

What Can’t Be Translated?

Rosetta can translate most Intel-based apps, including apps that contain just-in-time (JIT) compilers. However, Rosetta doesn’t translate the following executables:

  • Kernel extensions

  • Virtual Machine apps that virtualize x86_64 computer platforms

I tried this out on my M1 and VMware Fusion. With only ARM options for the OS when creating the VM, BIG-IP VE is just not going to boot unfortunately.
