    What's this? I have my own local version of Windows and have just purchased Parallels 13 and during installation it INSISTS on downloading Windows from Microsoft. No possibility to chose a local installation. Only to pause the download. I am on a metered line and ALREADY HAVE MY ISO FILE - what's this?

    Hi,
    In order to skip automatic installation and install the one you need, please do the following:
    1) Close Windows installation window
    2) Right-click on Parallels Desktop in Dock -> Create
    3) Install Windows using you own ISO
    4) Right-click on Parallels Desktop in Dock -> Control Center
    5) Right-click on the automatically created virtual machine -> Remove

    Hi Michael,
    Thanks for your feedback, and duly noted for next time. Please consider this as a change request, there is a button missing in the installer for this option, but for now - thanks for the workaround.
