    It installs just fine (new VM); but when it gets into the setup assistant, it constantly reboots after some seconds (the time can vary: setup loads, but then crashes): perhaps some form of graphics problem...?

    I had exactly the same problem with my 2019 MBP 15". After several hours, I am successfully into Safe Mode(press Shift while startup). Now I have the Panic Medic Boot dialog. It starts after about several minutes now.

    The Internet (shared or otherwise) does not seem to be working. I can do a few things, but the moment there is something that uses internet access it just locks up.

    Ventura installed and rebooted for me. No Networking but most other Shared Services are working. About 30 minutes of reboot loop.

    I did upgrade from Big Sur rather than Monterey.

    Anyone had suggestion on how to move forward? My MBP is not usable.

    Starting from a Monterey VM on my Mid 2012 MBP and Parallels v16, it bootloops constantly somewhere just after the initial download and that 30 minute setup time the installer quotes. I've yet to get to MacOS setup for the OS as it loops every like 5 seconds.

    After many boot (loops), I finally managed to get (almost) through the setup assistant and thus was able to login to an account; then, I installed the Parallels Tools: they seem to work (even if going from windowed mode to full screen and viceversa is slow), but the usual graphical glitches with the Apple GPU acceleration are of course still present, as also in Monterey VMs. Anyway, one thing is certain: it's really too early to have a reliable Ventura beta VM; very interesting as an experiment, however...

    I am doing my restore Mac OS to the earlier version. It's my working computer so won't try it until it's a stable version.

    Hello, could you please reproduce the issue once again and collect a tech report at the moment of reproduction as per this KB article Send us the ID of the report. Kindly elaborate on the issue you were facing after upgrading to Mac OS 13.

    Can we get a compatibility confirmation for Ventura? What are the basic requirements to expect? IE: I can install Monterey in v16. Does Ventura need v17? Are there certain settings/requirements? Would it be better to try doing the upgrade from Big Sur vs Monterey?

    Is there a reason you started with Big Sur vs Monterey? Or is that simply what you had installed in a VM?

    Nope. Big Sur was just the closest stock VM I had without getting off the couch and finding the SSD upstairs ;)

    Further info, after about 20 minutes of poking about various things, the pointer quit registering clicks in the UI. No root cause was obvious.Was in Full Screen mode.

    This is the point I got to. I got it installed, but then after some point in time, it would just stop responding to keyboard and mouse (UI might have been frozen as well).

    I have found out that if in my setting, I isolate windows from Mac, I have no problems at all, I just mapped my shared folders in windows and on my Mac OS. Copy and paste from one system to another does not work which stinks, Better than the black screen.

    I finally managed to get it installed on a newer Mac (2019 MBP), but I'm using v17 Parallels as well. It doesn't see the network connection and I basically can't do anything because it has pegged the full 8Gb of RAM its been allocated. It barely touches the vCPU, but RAM stays maxed once booted. I can't even get "About this Mac" to load at all. App store loads to a blank screen (no internet) and the new Settings app is sluggish at best. Even worse if you touch something needing internet. It's too early to tell if this is VM or OS as Monterey even Big Sur likes to eat the 8Gb as well. Just not the way Ventura is with locking up.

    Are there any recommended settings yet for this OS?

    The network seems to work with the Virtio adapter, in bridged mode. IMHO (YMMV), the worst "bug" - which BTW is present also in Monterey VMs - is the general instability and flickering (also with artifacts in the windows, invisible menu titles in the Menu Bar and often the same for icons in the Dock, for example) of the still experimental Parallels Metal Apple GPU support: certainly not ready for use, yet (and there seems to be no option to return to "ordinary" graphics, as it was until Catalina VMs)...

    Well crap, I tried switching to the Virtio adaptor and went looking for bridge mode. I found "Default" and "Wifi", so chose "default". Now it CTG consistently. I had to revert it back to Shared + Intel Pro/1000 MT to avoid triggering the Parallels crash.

    Scratch that, now the VM is CTD no matter what it's set to (revert to save even). Except for the standard settings, it would only load the VM to about 33% before crashing, but reverting gets up to 50% VM load before CTD. Gonna try making a new one using A clean Monterey this time instead of the cloned Big Sur->Monterey upgrade I'd based it off of.

    Sorry that it didn't work: for me, switching to the Virtio network worked, and I was able to update the VM to macOS Ventura beta 2; it might be something machine-specific, who knows: anyway, Parallels Desktop 17.1.4 isn't certainly ready for Ventura as a VM, yet...
