    Thank you for the perfect diagnosis. This is indeed the issue. Connected up the parallels tools iso and it's boot immediately.

    I can confirm that it is the same 2 min slow boot issue with 7 & Ubuntu 18. Also to do with disconnected DVD bug.

    You are a star AndrewJ7! Thanks a ton for spending your time on this and a workaround.

    brilliant solution, fixed issue immediately without specifying a different kernel, etc.

    I've attached the serial output from my Ubuntu 20.04.3 running 5.4.0-86 in case that's helpful. What I've noticed is while it's hanging on fast init, the only status indicator light flashing is the CD-ROM indicator. Perhaps the kernel is looking for something, attributing to AndrewJ7's solution, and is timing out after approximately 2 minutes?

    Is there ever going to be a follow-up from Eric or any other Parallels Developer? Anything? Or should we just stop paying?

    I also ran into this today, on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, with the latest version of Parallels [Version 17.0.1 (51482)].
    Linux parallels-Parallels-Virtual-Platform 5.4.0-86-generic #97-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 19:19:40 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Thank you @AndrewJ7, your workaround was brilliant! I did see the "blue blinky light" next to the disc drive icon...
    I also ran into this today, on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, with the latest version of Parallels [Version 17.0.1 (51482)].
    Running updates resolved this problem for me.
    This kernel was not working with the disc drive disconnected:
    Linux parallels-Parallels-Virtual-Platform 5.4.0-86-generic #97-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 19:19:40 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    This kernel is working fine both with and without the workaround:
    Linux parallels-Parallels-Virtual-Platform 5.4.0-88-generic #99-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 23 17:29:00 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    It seems that the CD issue is solved with Parallels 17.1.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem, when booting I get [0.772201] ACPI Error: AE_NOT_FOUND, Evaluating _CRC ...
    The System is:
    - Parallels Version 17.1.0 (51516)
    - Ubuntu 20.04 64
    - MacBook Pro - Intel i9 - macOS 11.6
    I have tried what mentioned above, where I hold ESC while booting and choosing advanced, I see 4 options:
    - Linux 5.8.0-44-generic
    - Linux 5.8.0-44-generic (Recovery mode)
    - Linux 5.8.0-43-generic
    - Linux 5.8.0-43-generic (Recovery mode)
    I tried all options but all showed the error.
    Hoping you can help.
    Thank you.

    I had this problem too but then upgrading to 17.1 seems to fix it. Unfortunately that also "upgrades" the video driver from prl_vid to virgl which is much slower to the point of being unusable.
    Only solution I've found so far is to upgrade to 17.1 but use the 17.0 guest tools.
