    Hi,

    Just got my Mac Studio (M1 Max), and installed Parallels Desktop 17. Created a new Windows 11 ARM VM, and tried to enable BitLocker inside the Windows for C: Drive. The encryption never got started, please see attached screenshot. Tried to restart the computer didn't help.

    Does PD 17 for Mac M1 support Bitlocker at all?

    Thanks
