    I used to be able to click "File -> New..." and have "Chrome OS" appear as one of the options under "Free Systems".
    It's gone in Parallels 13.
    If I click "Help" and search for "Chro", one of the options is "Download Pre-configured Virtual Appliances". One of the listed items is "Downloading Chromium OS Virtual Appliance".

    Hi @RickC1 , Chrome Os is not available with Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac.

    Arun, So I paid for an upgrade and ended up with less functionality. Also, your documentation says it's available. It would probably cost you less to restore Chrome OS capability than to change your documentation.

    Agreed - I went to install Chromium today on Parallels 13 and it was missing. I tried to open the version from the previous Parallels 12 version that that wasn't working correctly.

    Guys, the Chromium OS appliance no longer available as virtual appliance but you can install it by self.

    I am also requesting a link or better yet, please add the Chromium OS virtual appliance back to Parallels. Seems ridiculous that it is not included in your, "Upgrade". I too am feeling cheated here.

    If you have no plan to add the virtual appliance, then it would be very much appreciated if you can provide a link to download and instructions to install.

    As far as I can see, Google does not offer downloads of ChromeOS -- at least, not in a form that's easy to use with a virtual machine. And the popular ChromeOS builds once offered by Hexxah seem to have disappeared from the web entirely, and haven't seen updates in years.

    Thanks in advance for your support with this issue.
