    That's kinda my question: I've got a MBP (M1 chip) running 14.1, and I'd like to create a Windows 10 VM for it. Is there any way to do this? I have a Windows 11 image, but I'd like to build a new Windows 10 image for, well, Reasons. Any thoughts out there? Thanks!

    Only if you can find the ISO for an ARM version of Win10, but you can only get that either from an Enterprise source or if you happen across a (hopefully clean) copy of the developer beta that used to be live. Beyond that, IDK what kind of support you'll get from Parallels on that (hardware Or managing a reply on here).

    Hello,
    Unfortunately, please note that Microsoft no longer provides support for Windows 10 Arm. And as a result, Windows 10 is no longer supported in Parallels Desktop on Mac computers with Apple M-series chips. However, Windows 11 should be fully compatible with all applications that Windows 10 is compatible with.
    Thank you.
