    I'm new to parallels and now trying to install Monteray on a Macbook pro with the M1 silicon.
    I installed Parallels 1.7.3 (trial for now) and in the "create new" window, in "free systems" there is no option for any macos.
    I can see Windows 11 in the top (which I installed and works fine) and 4 linux flavours but no macos. No luck trying horizontal scrolling.

    so I tried "manual installation", since again the "download macos" is just not there.
    I downloaded the UniversalMac_12.4_21F79_Restore.ipsw
    and then used
    /Applications/Parallels\ ~/Downloads/UniversalMac_12.4_21F79_Restore.ipsw ~/Parallels/macOS.macvm --disksize 80000000000

    but the command silently exists with error code 1 (echo $?).

    any clues what I may be doing worng?

    many thanks in advance
