    I have been trying to install macos Sierra as a virtual machine. all I have is the maos install app.

    I first did this by letting Parallels detect the macos install app. It did, and then created an image file for it. It then made progress, went through all the install steps, and the it would hang at 2 minuted remaining, and just stay there. I even left it overnight, and the next days it was still stuck at 2 minutes remaining. I tried again, it made more progress, but it then got stuck at 1 minute remaining. So far, I have not been able to install the Sierra macos.

    I am on a 2018 mac mini with macos Ventura, and Parallels desktop 18.

    Can mac os guest machines be installed in Parallels? or does it only work with Windows guest machines?

    I would like to run 32 bit apps, among them my Adobe CS6 Design suite.
