    You need to install the operating system for the virtual machine Parallels is creating. If it's Windows, you need the ARM version of Windows 10 that you can download from Microsoft once you sign up for their insider program as explained by io_2000.

    From Parallels - Read these great articles by 9to5mac, MacRumors, MSPoweruser to see what others have to say about this version. The article in 9to5Mac made the process very straight forward.

    Can this be changed for CentOS 7 aarch64 at boot time during install?

    I have successfully installed Fedora 33 Server Aarch64 but, I can't get Xorg server running as Xorg -configure finds no devices. Also I checked for /dev/dri/card0 or similar and there is no directory. Do I need parallels tools first?, which does not currently support aarch64? Or am I just doing something wrong as the install had the video working?

    Just tried the latest preview, which resolves some of the initial bugs and makes it easier to install Linux ISO images. The preview is coming along really nicely. I'm hoping Parallels will add Tools support soon, so that I can run the VMs at a higher resolution.

    +1 for a resolution fix (assume this is support from Parallels Tools) , also getting a sticking cursor when i go to the edge of the screen whilst in full screen. These make it unusable environment for me.

    I have been unsuccessful. Even when following the above directions, I get the Windows ARM VM logo and a circle rotating on an infinite loop. It's been circling for over 12 hours now, and I can't get past that to get a Windows log-in screen. I have downloaded the same, exact Windows 10 Arm 64-bit file that everyone else seems to be downloading, and same issue. The rotating dotted circle is very slow.

    I have the Apple Developers Test Kit with the A12X ARM processor. Is this processor related, though?

    This is the same issue as when I tried this prior to the latest update. I did do an update from Parallels and did not download the newer version. I did an update in place. Anyone have any thoughts? Screen Shot 2020-12-31 at 9.57.23 AM.png

    And that's the problem. You need a device with the M1 processor.

    Debian Desktop was easy (and now handy).
    What about Android? Anyone know of an ARM64 version that would run in a Parallels VM?

    I have used a few ubuntu images. They are all hanging on the cd for reason (or seem to be) even when one is not connected anymore).

    Debian and Kali do not seem to do that. All three of them boot up ridiculously fast though. If/when we get further along and start getting tools it will be really nice.

    Now that I got Kali working that is my next project probably. I don't think they will use UEFI so it will take a little manipulation. Don't think any will run out of the box.

    I tried this and when I get to step 3, I cannot find the installation.iso file. I can't complete the set up. What am I missing?

    Did you use a Kali iso file? Can you you say what you downloaded please.

    Perhaps you downloaded the virtual hard disk file containing Windows 10 (i.e *.vdhx) instead of the iso file. Check your downloads folder for a file that that extension. It will work to install Windows 10 in the Parallels 16 for M1 tech preview, just like the iso file.

    unfortunately it doesn't work for me, when i play reset this comes out
    "To install an operating system, connect a source with the operating system installation files, such as a CD, USB stick or disk image and recover the virtual machine"
