    Because this problem seems to have arisen since PD 14, I have been wondering whether PD 14 has a glitch that defaults the number of processor cores selected to all the available cores. Anyway, try this solution if you haven't already.

    Same problem on my iMac (8GB, FusionDrive), using the number of CPUs, RAM, Graphics mem etc. as suggested by PD14. Boot times of 4-5 minutes for Windows 10 (compared to < 1 min before PD14) and frequent phases of approx. 1-2 minutes with 150% CPU during which the VMs are basically frozen (Windows and Linux alike).
    None of the suggestions by Parallels helped. PD14 is a waste of time for me.
