    I am trying to install Windows 10 arm on MacBook M1 Pro using Parallels. I already installed windows 11 using the package downloaded from the windows insider which works OK, however some applications I use do not work in windows 11. I downloaded the ISO file of this version: Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.22478.1012 (rs_prerelease) arm64 from uupdump.net. however I receive this error from parallels:
    "the secure boot feature prevented the operating system from starting. Secure boot found unauthorized changes to the firmware, operating system, or UEFI drivers. To manage secure boot settings, go to the virtual machine configuration settings, click hardware, and expand advanced settings."
    Under hardware in the settings I could not find any options after clicking on Advanced. How can I install windows 10?

    I'm also trying to install Windows 10 ARM on iMac M1 using parallels 17 (trial), as the software I need to use is only Windows 10 compatible. When I try to install Windows 10 ARM (Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.22478.1012 (rs_prerelease) amd64, I get the following 'SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED'. I can't proceed and am unable to use the required software, which unfortunately makes my nice new shiny imac pretty defunct! Any help much appreciated.

    Hi Mochajoe, was wondering if you already found a solution to 'the secure boot issue' installing Windows 10 arm on MacBook M1 Pro using Parallels
    "the secure boot feature prevented the operating system from starting. Secure boot found unauthorized changes to the firmware, operating system, or UEFI drivers. To manage secure boot settings, go to the virtual machine configuration settings, click hardware, and expand advanced settings."

    Hi all, I have the same problem with this error, and have found the solution.
    @YutingC1 you are showing that you are using the AMD64 version, not the ARM64 version. You must use the ARM version for an M1 mac.

    I used Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.21390.1010 (co_release) arm64 and got this error.
    So frustrating. I was able to get Windows 11 to work but parallels keeps crashing my computer when I am using excel in windows 11, so I thought I would try windows 10 to see if it was any more stable. Parallels needs to look into this as it is making windows 11 very unusable and unreliable.
    FYI: For windows 11, don't use a current build, but rather find the one with 22000 in it - the current build doesn't work properly and is buggy. You can still update to the latest once it is installed.
    Back to the error solution:
    You need to remove the TPM chip. To read more about what TPM does, https://kb.parallels.com/en/122702
    So you go to Control Center, configuration for the VM you are trying to install (Windows 10) and then go to Hardware and find the TPM setting. Once you select the TPM, you need to click on the "-" symbol at the bottom to remove it. Windows 10 does not need TPM.
    If you are installing windows 11, you NEED to use the TPM and it should work with build 22000 arm64 version from uupdump.net.
    Hope this helps!

    Ensure you are using ARM64 not AMD64 - see my post for the solution to this problem as well.

    Windows 11 requires the TPM setting, so you can't remove it. You need to find the build with 22000 in it on ARM64 - this worked great for me except for issue with crashing involving a full restart of the mac. I think this is a parallels issue.

    So I followed your recommendation of removing the TPM, this did not work I am still receiving the "BlueScreen" error message.
