    I'm installing Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro 15" Late 2016. The Parallels Wizard has been rotating for 1.5 to 2 hours. Windows 10 was on a USB drive, and I chose the USB option in the Parallels installation when starting. Thanks

    I see elsewhere that it is recommended to download the .iso file from Microsoft rather than use the USB stick that Microsoft supplies. Thanks for two hours of watching the wizard icon spin.

    Hi Davidj5, we would like you to try this article for installing Windows 10 with Microsoft USB installation stick.

    The .iso file worked. As far as trying the article above, I did that originally and after step 6 there was only a spinning icon. Please make sure things work well before release.

    I've been trying to install a 64-bit version of Parallels with Windows 10 using the Wizard and an iso file (which the Wizard found on its own in my Downloads folder--I had just downloaded it so it's a current version). So far it's been about a half hour of a black Parallels Wizard window and a spinning wheel. The entries in the Console log appear to repeat after awhile. Can anyone judge if this is all normal and I should just wait it out? I'm not seeing any direct progress in the Parallels Wizard window.
    Here is the Console Log portion:
