    Double-click the downloaded Parallels Desktop installation file with the . dmg extension to mount it to Finder. Then double-click the Install icon. Enter your Mac user account password to begin installation.

    To configure Parallels Desktop do the following:
    Open Parallels Desktop and click Parallels Desktop > Preferences in the menu bar. Then click General and select the Start Parallels Desktop as a service option.

    A typical installation process of Parallels Desktop will only take 5 minutes and if you have an iso image file of Windows 8 then Windows installation will not take more than 20-25 minutes

    Hi and thanks for your feedback. I've done what you suggested, unfortunately I'm into I think my 4th hour now. Something isn't right. Any other assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Approaching my 6th hour. Should I send it into the trash and start again? thanks

    So, basically I sent the files to the trash and downloaded everything again. Looks like its worked. Possibly a corrupted file which is now resolved.
