    MacBook Pro M1 with MACOS 12 Beta 3, running Parallels 16.5.1, with Windows 10 ARM insider preview installed

    I can download and install bluestacks 5, but when attempting to run it will error out and ask me to reboot Windows. Is anyone able to get this to work? This one app is the reason I haven't dropped my Windows PC yet, but being able to run this on my MacBook along with Windows would be a gamechanger for me.

    I've been searching for a while for this, If I understood correctly, these Android Emulators i.e. BlueStacks and Gameloop needs Hyper-V running in Windows which won't happen currently as Parallels Desktop doesn't currently support Nested Virtualization (Virtualization for BlueStacks inside Virtualization for Windows ARM) for M1 Macs right now

    Yes, you are correct "Nested Virtualization" is currently not available on M1 Macs that is the reason Bluestack is unable to run in Windows 10 ARM.

    the M2 does nested virtualization, so parallel should fix this with prio 1. IT IS IMPORTANT
