    Well using the text datei config.ini for the monterey guest I was able to config 20 core - geekbench 5 21.000.
    But for Windows there are only options up to 8 cores.
    Is there a timeline when we can expect full Windows support for the Mac Studio Ultra ?

    Hi,

    I got my new Mac Studio M1 Ultra and installed the Windows 11. But I can not set a higher CPU number than 4 CPU and only 8 GB of RAM.
    I read about some other users can't exceed 8, but I can not even assign more than 4 cores or more than 8 GB.

    But the Pro-edition is limited to 8 CPUs on the M1 Mac - esp. on the Mac Studio Ultra - this is far away from the advertised 32 CPUs.

    Hello @pavanbits1, The architecture of the Intel Processor differs from the M1 chip processor. Thanks, Parallels Team.

    Ok, thanks. I did not notice, that there are two different versions... Now it is working with the 8 CPU's.
    I guess, in future versions more than 8 will be available ?

    Hello, please refer to know more about assigning CPUs to virtual machines between Pro Edition and Standard Edition. Thanks.

    Can you please let your team at Parallels know that more and more of us are getting M1 and now M2 Macs and that the limitation at 4 cores is closing the door on using Windows 11 on M Series Macs.
    Thank you.

    It seems if you get the Pro version, you can use up to 32 CPUs.

    Hello,

    I have just realised that the M1 with Parallels 17 does not support PXE Boot, which it did previously with Intel based chips.

    Problem is I have around 100 new macs that I was going to image this way for business. I didnt fancy manually doing this honestly.

    Is there an ETA on this?

    Thanks

    Hi Peter,
    I can tell you it's in our roadmap, and we're working on the feature. Unfortunately, I can't provide you with the ETA since it's internal information.
