Error Installing Windows 11 ARM Updates

    I have been trying to install Windows 11 updates on my M1 Mac using Parallels and I keep getting errors. My original install of Windows eventually broke due to a Window update failing and not being able to fix it. Eventually, I rolled back to the initial snapshot after I installed W11 for the first time. I am attempting to install Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25151.1010 (rs_prerelease). When the update downloads and installs, I have to reboot my machine. It then takes me to a screen where it completes the feature update. The screen says my computer may restart multiple times. When my machine restarts the first time, it exits the Parallels VM completely and I have to relaunch the machine. It then undoes the changes it makes, and I have to download and install again. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I am in the Insider Program for Windows 11 ARM and it has been a nightmare trying to install updates on Parallels.

    I have also tried to install the updates manually and through PowerShell with no success. Any help is appreciated.

    I figured out this issue. I had to run updates on my Mac before this worked normally. I had to upgrade from Monterey 12.1 to Monterey 12.4 and then the updates on Parallels Windows 11 ARM worked. I assume this is due to compatibility with Parallels and/or Parallels Tools. I'll leave this up for anyone with a similar problem.
