This virtual machine is based on Windows 11 Insider Preview. I created this virtual machine for VMware so it works best with VMware products, e.g. VMware Player (free) or Workstation Pro (paid) to run. Download the .7z file. To unpack this archive, you’ll need 7-Zip (download link below). Open VMware and click on ‘Open’ and select the .vmx file. I set RAM to 4 GB, depending on how much physical RAM you have installed, change it up to 8 GB for better performance. Don’t assign more than 50% of your physical resources to the VM. The default user is Joe , the password is 0808 . Also, I included a fake popup if you need one. It’s located on the desktop as ‘Micerosoft’ link. You can edit the number in the HTML.

Credits to all those whose tools/tutorials were used to make it stealthy:
This vm does not contain a keylogger as it turned out to cause problems / didn’t work somehow when it came like that with the vm. People complained and the solution was the keylogger had to be re-installed for it to work. So that’s why it makes most sense to install that on your own if you need it. I used bestxkeylogger however there are other ones as well.
@dillpickle778 I’m not sure. I’ve read that it’s required but then recently I saw in the news that they dropped the requirement. But I can’t say how that affects virtualization and if VMware emulates TPM 2.0 for it to run correctly even if your host PC doesn’t support it. That being said, I think most if not all PCs these days have TPM 2.0 anyway: I read in an article that AMD and Intel mainboards and CPUs support TPM 2.0 since 2015. So any newer PC should be able to run it. Older PCs will probably struggle anyway with running a VM.
Will the Windows 10 VM be made available again? I’ve gone through troubleshooting to attempt to make this one work, but there’s something different between this build and whatever the leaked build was. It won’t even attempt to boot without TPM and secure boot enabled. However, it just constantly boot loops. It fails booting, restarts, repairs boot, restarts, crashes, etc.
ETA: Using the latest version of VMWare Workstation that’s available (16.2).
Sorry for the late reply. I am a student that was able to purchase a full VMWare Workstation license, so this is what I use. I attempted to force VMWare to use the TPM module as mentioned in my original post. But I am not enabling the TPM chip on my workstation for various reasons, mainly being that Windows 11 is not a ready product and removes features present in Windows 10.
If the Windows 10 VM is not available anymore, I’ll just create my own. It seems flawed to remove the download for W10 VM when there is an entire group of users that will purposely keep their TPM chip disabled to prevent unpleasant surprises from Microsoft.
There is a bug that allows hackers to escape the virtual machine using the virtual CD-ROM drive. While it’s very unlikely that scammers know how to exploit it, I still recommend doing the following steps:
Update your VMware Workstation / Player by going to Help → Software Updates and then click the “Check for Updates” button
Fully shutdown the VM and remove the CD-ROM drive by doing these steps:
