    I'm trying to make a macOS VM look like an actual computer, the goal is not to be able to tell (from MDM mostly) that this is a VM

    I find some articles about the article, the UUID, and the model identifier :
    -- Which I can try at the moment because somehow I don't have the gear for the VM configuration next to the VM on the configuration panel :
    Go to Hardware -> Boot Order -> Advanced settings, and add the following Boot flags:


    for the UUID https://kb.parallels.com/11197, I can't find the config.pvs file

    If I manage all this, the last issue I think I'll get is the hardware report on system preference, I'm pretty sure it's will be reported as M1 (VIRTUAL).
    Can I somehow change the reported CPU? ideally not to an M1... but at least not showing "Virtual"
