    Has anyone successfully run a Windows 10 VM on Parallels 16 with the Monterey developer preview? Hoping there will be less issues than the Big Sur upgrade.

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro VM on Parallels 16 with MacOS 12 Monterey Beta 1.
    Parallels Desktop was installed easily and so far I have not detected any problems.
    On the contrary, it seems to me that in Monterey P.D. works much better and faster than in Big Sur.
    Moreover... my iMac isn't supported by Monterey!!! ;):):rolleyes: and I use OpenCore Legacy Patcher only for spoofing to iMac17,1 from 14.2 and to allow installation and boot without any patch (for Kext, etc.)
    iMac 27'' Late 2013 - CPU i7 24 GB RAM - nVidia GTX 780M 4GB VRAM

    Hi, greetings from Bali Indonesia. I just upgraded monterey on existing SSD, MBA i5 8GB 256GB, not on VM. and my Parallel won't open. Downgrade to big sur also mean I have to erase and clean install my existing ssd with big sur which I don't intended to do. Any clue how to to get back to big sur in most secure possible way? thank you.

    Found my issue, for some odd reason, my Boot Camp SSD wasn't being ejected/unmounted from the my iMac's Desktop. Once I manually ejected the T7, Parallels 16.5.0 worked as expected.

    This is still happening with version 16.5.1 (49187). Parallels Desktop still isn't ejecting/unmounting my external Boot Camp SSD after launching the PD app.

    Did you ever get PD 16 working on Monterey? I'm holding off upgrading my laptop OS unless PD 16 will work.

    Or I'll stop using PD altogether.

    I got PD16 right before PD17 came out (not eligible for the free upgrade. Just a few weeks out) and really don't want to pay another $50. Interested to hear what people are experiencing on macOS Monterey and PD16. I am running Windows 10 on my VM. Simple setup.

    Hi! I would know if Parallels Desktop 16.5 is still working in the last update of macOS Monterey. Since now, I decided to not update macOS from Big Sur to Monterey because in the PD site it says that PD 16 isn't compatible with Monterey, so before updating, I would have the certainty that I may use PD 16 running on macOS Monterey. Anyone of the users or the PD team can give me this information? Thank you!
