    Hello all
    I'm trying to create a FreeDOS VM just for fun. I've selected the ISO, the other OS type and gone to the machine configuration, but I can't find an option under the CPU tab to enable x86 emulation, and I thought there was meant to be an option there. Is there something I'm missing?

    Hello noddybox,

    Thank you for the provided data.

    Kindly allow me to clarify.

    Creating a virtual machine on your Apple Silicon Mac using an ISO compiled for any architecture other than ARM64 is not currently possible on Parallels Desktop. We do not offer this as a feature.

    The x86_64 feature present on Parallels Desktop 19 is specifically intended for running Docker x86 (Intel 64-bit) containers, binaries, or applications on Silicon Macs. As such, users are not able to install x86_64 (Intel 64-bit) operating systems on Silicon Macs, which is necessary for your specific use case.
