    I am trying to setup an OpenBSD vm using Parallels Desktop (5).

    If anyone else has done this before please let me know, I'd love some advice.

    Once I get it setup, I'll post the steps I took to get it running incase someone else wants to set up an OpenBSD vm.

    Super Easy

    Just download the .iso or use the cd.
    Boot up (I have selected Other -> Other, from the OS selection in Parallels)
    And follow the prompts. Pretty straight forward.

    I've done this a few times with 4.8, works like a charm, no issues :)

    Does parallels support any of the tools or guest additions to run on OpenBSD?

    Hi, Parallels Tools are not available for this operating system(OpenBSD 6). For reference please refer to this KB article

    @GowthamR@Parallels Since Parallels officially supports OpenBSD installation, may I request the Parallels team to have an option 'OpenBSD' under the 'Please select your operating system > Other' menu ? I am not sure why the user should select Other > Other when OpenBSD is supported in Parallels.
