    Hey guys,

    I have Mac Studio with a 512GB HD and then I have 3 external nvme SSD drives in RAID configuration which gives me another 1.5TB of space. I upgraded to Parallel's 18, and now when running Windows 11 pvm on the external drive, my Mac Studio will crash and restart giving an error. It ended up corrupting my Windows 11 as I was in the middle of a visual studio installation when it occurred. After reviewing and googling the error message reported by MacOS upon restart, I moved my Windows 11 pvm file to the internal drive of my mac studio and it hasn't crashed since. Even though all other linux VM's continue to run happily on the external drive. So I don't know if it's MacOS or Parallels who is to blame as rather than just crashing Parallels, it crashes my entire machine.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?
