Opening .sh files in macOS Terminal to convert to .ISO for Windows 11 on M1 Mac

This is a pretty straight forward tutorial.

Here’s what you need:

  1. Homebrew — https://brew.sh
  2. Aria2 — https://aria2.github.io

But don’t worry about those just yet.

Installing Homebrew

To install Homebrew, simply open up Terminal (just use Spotlight search and type it in)

Then, copy or type the following line

/bin/bash -c “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

Installing Aria2

Next up, Aria2.

While in Terminal, type or copy the following line

brew install aria2

Now for the fun part

Installing Git

Simply copy the following:

brew install git

hit return to execute in Terminal

Installing xCode commands

Copy and paste the following:

xcode-select — install

hit return to execute in Terminal

Running .sh file

To run that .sh file in the UUP dump folder that you downloaded do the following:

brew install aria2 cabextract wimlib cdrtools sidneys/homebrew/chntpw

This is also install everything needed to get the .iso file

If it shows this, relax, everything is still fine.

Next, change directory into the folder containing the .sh file

To do so, simply type

cd

then directly after that drag the folder on the same line and hit return

Next, type or copy this next line

chmod +x uup_download_macos.sh

Hit return

Then simply drag the folder containing your Windows .sh file into Terminal

Hit return again and let it do work.

And that's it! Afterwards, check the folder containing the .sh file and look for the .ISO file. Now you can proceed with my video covering installing Windows 11 on M1 Mac w/VMware Fusion.
