    I've tried to install these distros which have replaced stable CentOS releases, however the Parallels bios screen sticks and the actual Linux boot sequence never shows.

    Anyone get these to work?

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 doesn't have any support for M1; too old of a kernel. You can try CentOS 9 Alpha to see if this have been alleviated, otherwise open an issue with Red Hat.

    Fedora works perfectly fine though, I recommend using that.

    Same issue here. Alma Linux is our standard for a project, therefore, it would be good to get them going.
    It gets as far as selecting the install verification or go straight to the install. Selecting either jumps right back to the same install select screen.

    Anyone make progress?
    https://rockylinux.org is one of the options at DigitalOcean so it would be nice to get past the looping install prompt and test out some things in Parallels.
