    Can't start Parallels as all i get is the "To complete Parallels Desktop setup, please restart your Mac."

    I collect a tech report data once the issue reproduced and send it, id: 343980298

    Fresh clean install of Big Sur and then installed Parallels without the tool box.
    Missing T and Y keys as well. I thought it was to do with not installing the tool box. I installed that.
    Everything appears to be running smooth so far apart from the T and Y keys. (and possibly a few others I didn't notice yet)
    I am not a developer, I just love Betas! ;)
    I noticed some people using the fn key for typing the T and Y. Will there be any sort of update for this via Big Sur or through Parallels?

    I read from another post that removing any traces of virtual box will solve this issue for now. I just encountered the issue and uninstalling virtual box using app cleaner solved my problem. Hope it can solve your problem:)

    Not sure if it's already been posted in here, but to work around getting booted on login, simply don't sign in with iCloud during install (signing in to iCloud later also boots you out, such as when trying to setup Messages). Also, avoid clicking icons in the menu bar / the clock as this will freeze the system and log you out.

    P.S.: Although Parallels Tools are not working at the moment, for people who own VMWare Fusion (gasp), the VMWare Tools seem to be working fairly well overall.

    I tried re-downloading the installer and got the same issue. Tried changing various settings: ditto.
    Later, I tried on Virtual Box and still got the same problem. At this point, I'm not sure if it's an input problem (mouse and keyboard simply not handled) a computation problem (VM is just stuck) or an output problem (screen not refreshed). How am I supposed to sort this?

    Any difference with the new beta today?

    Just installed beta 2, and now I'm getting kicked out to desktop again... so strange!

    Can someone from the Parallels team please step in here and provide an estimated timeline for then Parallels will properly support macOS Big Sur? I have been watching this thread for weeks and frankly it's embarassing that the one Parallels person on here seems to keep encouraging people to pursue these hacks despite the support page saying "no workaround." Let's just be frank - it doesn't work right now! We all know it. So just be open about it and let us know when it might work (weeks? months?) rather than lead people on to think that through a series of hacks they can make this functional.

    Installed beta 2, didn't log into iCloud, created a second account in case I decide to. So far, so good!

    Does it still have the problem with missing menu bar icons and control center causing WindowServer to crash?

    I haven't yet tried the new beta, but installing the "previous" one (the one I couldn't install) on another Mac actually worked (but I only have 4GB of RAM on the host, there...). This boils down to a problem with my setup on the regular computer I'm using...

    You can set up shortcuts in Parallells preferences for the keys on their own, without using fn key. You will also need to set up shift options for T and Y.

    Thanks! That worked for me. I had to reset Windows a few times, but it finally started.

    Definitely some menu bar icons missing. Clicking around on the menu bar - yeah, crashola.

    And, it does look like logging into iCloud makes the crash automatic on login again. Bummer. Wanted to see what the Home app looks like.
