I am trying to install Elementary OS, an Ubuntu derivative (elementary.io), under Parallels Desktop 14 on a late 2014 iMac running High Sierra (10.12). The Mac and Parallels are up to date. ISSUE: When Elementary OS boots, all I get is a black screen. I've installed many Linux distros on this machine to test them but this is the first time I ran into this problem! I went through the steps to install Elementary OS (eOS). Before the install, I create a custom configuration to give the VM more memory and more Video RAM. Following the config, eOS boots from the downloaded ISO file and appeaers to install without issues. When the VM with eOS installed reboot, I get a black screen. The only thing on the screen is the little network icon and power icon at the top-right of the screen. Since eOS is based on Ubuntu, I searched the Knowledge Base for an answer. The only thing I found was a similar issue with Ubuntu server: https://kb.parallels.com/en/123760 I tried the solutions in the article but after booting on either solution, the screen goes black. In my question to find a specific solution, I would like to give Elementary OS a try. However, I would prefer to load it in a VM than the target system since it is being used. Can anyone help?
