    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?

    Not sure if anyone care but I have been able to install Windows 11 arm64 in Parallels on my M1 Macbook Pro 11. This thing is FAST! If you care to know how to do it then here you go. It was rather easy actually.

    This solution is derived from (588) Windows 11 ARM is FINALLY HERE! M1 Mac Install Tutorial - Parallels VM + Game Benchmark Comparison - YouTube

    - Using uupdump.net create the two iso (win10 and win11)
    - Mount win11 iso
    - Mount win10 iso
    - Copy the win10 iso files to a new folder
    - Replace the win10 iso files /sources/install.wim with /sources/install.wim from the win11 iso
    - Create new iso from combined files in new folder:

    .\bin\cdimage.exe -bootdata:1#pEF,e,b"D:\iso\win11arm64\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin" -o -m -u2 -udfver102 D:\iso\win11arm64 win11arm64.iso

    - Use to install win11 on parallels for m10

    Has anyone successfully installed MacOS Big Sur? I get the same error, and when I follow this process, and it doesn't work.

    To install macOS as a Guest, you need to be running the Monterey Beta. I am not sure that supports a Big Sur guest or only Montery.
    I think Parallels needs HyperVisor and/or Firmware changes.
