    In case you didn't see, the news is here. Some early observations:

    - Ubuntu now has sound, which was the one real downside of the Linux ARM setup at this point
    - FreeBSD now boots with multiple cores, which it wasn't previously able to do.

    Looks like they made a lot of good fixes to the system this time around.

    I wonder if this part in the knowledge base article is poorly worded or if we will indeed be able to use regular Windows 11 instead of Insider Previews.
    „This new operating system from Microsoft is expected this fall. When it is officially released, install and use Windows 11 in Parallels virtual machines on Mac computers both with the Apple M1 chip and an Intel processor. If you want to try it earlier, you can already install and work with Windows 11 Insider Preview."

    Already installed and running. It's necessary to add TPM manually if you have an existing VM. You may check TPM presence in Windows by running "tpm.msc"

    Hi ,
    just installed Parallels 17 on a MacBookPro15 i7...
    I have 2 virtual machines:
    . Windows10Pro , it works perfectly
    . Windows XP to run two very old softwares.... FREEZE on windows xp starting! :(((
    So it seems there is a problem between Parallels17 and WindowsXP
    I've tried on 2 computers (Macbook pro and Mac mini) it's same.
    Bad news fo rme.

    How do you add TPM manually? I am running on M1 and don't see an option...

    Go to the top bar "Actions" - "Configure", select the "Hardware" bar, click the "+" at the bottom left corner, voila. You see the TPM chip option from the drop list

    Just tried the new Parallels 17 and enabled the TPM chip on this M1 MacBook with an existing Win 11 Insider VM. The question is that even after this attempt, there's a still a message showing that "Your PC doesn't meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11." Checked tpm.msc and it seems that TPM 2.0 is enabled. Looks very disappointing.

    Oh, this is interesting. Looks like we won't need to use TPM for Windows 11 after all.

    „A virtual TPM chip isn't required for upgrading to Windows 11. Starting with Parallels Desktop 17, Parallels Desktop reports to Windows OS that it's running in a virtual environment so that Windows doesn't ask for the presence of a TPM 2.0 chip."

    I like this update. They fixed the processor frequency reporting. It says 3.20 GHz now

    Probably, memory for VM is below 4GB?

    Hello, could you collect the tech report once the issue is reproduced and post the report's ID here please?

    Hello! Sure, it's 375984893. Currently I switched to the dev insider ring by modifying the registry, but I'm curious why it says it doesn't meet the minimum requirements. I ran the "WhyNotWin11" app and the only thing that it showed incompatible is DirectX 12. Maybe it's that? Are there any plans for DirectX 12 support for M1? Thank you!

    One feature request that would be nice to see as someone who messes with SBCs and a Pinebook Pro: It'd be nice to see Parallels natively support boot images intended for Raspberry Pi or Rock64 SBCs, which are generally distributed as images burned to microSD and eMMC. The issue with those should be less ARM support and more just supporting the boot structure they use.

    As many ARM builds are not in ISO form it would open up a lot of options for end users and give those developing for those target platforms a virtual platform to test on.

    Same problem: ID 375995948
    Missing DirectX 12 support is the only reason I can think of. It was odd that the knowledge base article 125521 only mentioned TPM and not DX12.

    Same problem here. Even after manually adding the virtual TPM 2.0 device Windows says the system does not meet minimum requirements for Windows 11
