    Greetings, Programs !

    I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) running Catalina 10.15.7 (19H524) with 16GB of RAM and 256 internal SSD. I am running Parallels for Mac Pro Edition
    Version 16.1.3 (49160) and I am trying to install Debian 10.8 using the ISO: debian-10.8.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso (md5: 11487cad151422cb70076bfb7e918540)

    I have tried using different configuration such as: standard SATA, SCSI, even NVMe, different network configurations, Isolated Linux from Mac, different RAM (2GB or 4GB), different options like disable camera, audio, etc, etc, etc.

    I am getting always the same behavior, the ISO boots-up and shows me the "Debian installer Menu (Bios mode)" some kind of blue(ish) background and I select 2nd option with is "Install", that is basic command line installation. Then, it starts? after 1 or 2 secs gets stuck on a black screen, and nothing happens, no CD/DVD movement, or network, nothing. Meaning the installation crashed/freeze ???

    I have also a MacMini 2018 where I have VMware fusion v12, and I can install the same ISO (with NVMe options, or SATA, old Bios or UEFI, etc) and I can always install it, I have installed on the MacMini a bunches of times.

    I have on my MacBook under Parallels for Mac v16.1.3, a bunch of VMs like: Ubuntu 20.04, FreeBSD, MacOS 10.15.5 and even ESXi v6.7 all the VMs run fine, what is going on with this Debian 10.8?

    Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only Hope.
