4 years old. Looks like 1 commit and that is it.

It is a BASH script to help automate the virtual machine process. Looks compatible for MacOS and Linux.

The VM storage location is assumed to be on a SATA controller by the script. Looks hard coded for Intel AHCI.
The script attaches to the ISO file via IDE controller, seems logical.

Looks like you run it from the Terminal, tell it which disc to scan and it tries to attach (assumes it is IDE) to it and runs.

Not sure how well this would work on modern systems with NVME drives.
