    I cannot get this to work.

    I'm on the "M1" version supposedly, I've followed what you said above - I set up a blank (continue without a source), right clicked the virtual machine and clicked configure, then on CD/DVD I added the source to be the Windows 10 64bit download .iso from windows file, I then click actions > reset & it comes up saying "there is no operating system installed in this virtual machine."

    PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP?! :)

    So far M1 Parallels is useless for the typical user. They need some reasonable installation methods. If you follow their instructions it appears you must have Windows Pro installed before you can install Windows ARM. How can that be?

    You don't need a previous Windows installation. Just follow the steps in this video:

    Many many thanks. Very easy. It appears to have worked. I did not install Ubuntu Linux, only Windows 10.

    The key for the Technical Preview does not work any longer and you don't need to enter it.
    From the screenshot it looks like the key you entered was for a purchased upgrade to Parallels 16 from a previous version of Parallels (for example version 15). You should be able to find the key for that previous version if you log into your Parallels account.

    I am trying to install Windows 10 Client ARM64 Insider Preview - Build 21354

    It installs on Paralletls 16.5, but (like previous versions) crashes just at 100% install with "failed to execute the operation" (with no details or clue of the cause!).
    That part was perfactly fine in the video above.

    Geht technisch leider nicht. Die alten Intel-VMs brauchen zwingend einen Intelprozessor und auf dem M1 laufen nur ARM-Gastsysteme. In einem Thread hat ein Parallels-Mitarbeiter allerdings einen Knowledgebase-Artikel gepostet, in dem erläutert wird, wie wenigstens Daten aus dem alten System gesichert und übertragen werden können. Ich weiß leider nicht mehr welcher Thread das war.

    Which build? Did you do anything special to get it to work? I'm trying to install Win10 from an .iso instead of the .vhdx. I'm building the .iso fine using the linux script in the download package but I get an unhandled thread error at the start of installation.

    I have followed the instructions for setting up Windows 10 ARM64 under Parallels 16.5. When it asks for the Windows VHDX file, I select the file I downloaded (build 21354) and parallels gives me an "Unable to detect operating system" error. If I press Continue, select Windows 10, Productivity, and Create, I get "operation failed. Failed to execute the operation."

    Any ideas how to get past this problem?

    Thanks for the tips, I was searching the whole internet looking for comments like this.
    However, would you explain more details about the page size. Is this due to hardware limitation like you have mentioned the "translation granule isn't available on Apple M1", or it just something that PD have deal with and perhaps would be patched in the future?
