    Further Update. I checked today and it's not reserved on the 2011 mac mini and it has the same message now that I had on the 2009 iMac stating that "Windows 10 will not run on this PC ... Here's Why Windows 10 can't be installed: Parallels Display Adapter (WDDM) (You'll experience problems with your display)."

    Just an update as Parallels is hopefully working on a solution.

    Problem Report sent to Parallels and Problem Report ID submitted separately by starting a conversation with Maria@Parallels.
    Fingers crossed a solution is soon found.

    Exact same problem, report ID 66785879. I'm hoping the fix will also correct the issue with the mouse when using PowerPoint and an external monitor via the HDMI port!

    I am glad that your developers are looking into this issue. Funny thing is that I ran about 4 or 5 versions of the Windows 10 Technical Preview without any issues under Parallels 10.

    I found a workaround:
    Just right-click on the Windows (Reservation) Logo on the right side of the taskbar and click on the "Reserve your Windows 10" option. It might be called slightly different. I am not using an english version here. But then you'll get the screen where you can enter your email and submit it to microsoft.

    I wish that the workaround was functional for me. I just see "Get to know Windows 10", "Go to Windows Update", and "Get Windows 10" when I right-click on the logo. I think we are left to wait on Parallels to correct this issue with their video driver.

    I was able - through the normal clicking on the icon - to give MS my email for notification. But I still get the message that the Parallel video driver is not compatible. So while you and me might have our emails registered, I don't think that that actually solves the issue.

    just to give all the info, I was able to subscribe to the windows 10 program, via the work around. But I would anyway think it would be nice to have this fixed

    The problem I have is that on two Windows8.1 VMs, I do not get any
    "Windows 10 Update App" icon on either installation.

    I have all available updates (including optionals) installed in Windows
    as of today (7/4/2015). I am running the most recent Parallels build available
    with Paralllels Tools installed.

    So, I don't even get the chance to be told that Windows 10 won't work
    (even though I have a preview version working just fine in a VM).

    FWIW:
    Machine 1 : Early 2011, 2.7 GHz, 13" Macbook Pro with 8GB memory, 256 GB SSD, Intel HD3000 graphics
    Machine 2 : Late 2013, 3.2GHz, 27" iMac with 32 GB memory installed, NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1024 MB
    Both machines now running OS X 10.10.4 (issue was there with 10.10.3 as well).

    Perhaps with Windows 10 and OS X El Capitan around the corner (supposedly with significant
    graphics interface improvements) the Parallels team is a bit overloaded.

    Or perhaps, Microsoft either:
    a) Doesn't want Windows 10 on VMs
    or
    b) Really wants to force people using VMs to purchase Windows 10.
