    In both instances Parallels told me if could not install because it was an INTEL architecture. What ARM OSs currently work?

    Hi Dave,

    The images are indeed currently misdetected as x86. Therefore, manual installation is required. To perform it, please follow the steps below:

    1. Open Parallels Desktop. Click New > Install Windows or another OS from a DVD or image file > Continue > Choose Manually > Continue without a source > Continue > Ok > Continue > Create.

    2. Open the virtual machine's Configuration: click Parallels icon || > Control Center > right click on the virtual machine > Configure.

    3. Click Hardware > CD/DVD > Source and browse to the installation .iso

    4. Switch back to the virtual machine's Window and in the top menu click Actions > Reset.

    5. Virtual machine shall boot from the installation image and let you proceed with installing the OS.
