    Are you certain that you downloaded the correct version? That error message sounds like you downloaded an Insider Preview for Intel and not for ARM. If you go to the link I posted above and click on the link in the picture, you should be able to install it. upload_2021-1-19_17-11-54.png

    looks ok now with windows however when installing windows it now says
    To create a compatible virtual machine, use an ISO or VHDX image file with an ARM-based operating system.

    My installation has just updated to 10296.1010 (previously .1000) ...
    Noticed that internet connection not working ... haven't tried to do fix yet ...

    Still reeling from 10292.1010 ... rolled back to .1000 and recovered some disk space ... VM trashed and never booted since ...

    Seen another poster record that recovering disk space corrupted things ... won't do that again ...

    Anybody else on 10296.1010 yet ... noticing any issues ?

    I noticed that 296.1010 was a bit jittery when first updated. It's stabilized now. The internet connectivity behavior has not changed for me. Occasionally it loses access (especially after a resume), I just fire up cmd and type "ipconfig /renew". Not an ideal outcome, but oh well.

    You get that message when trying to use the ISOs and not the VHDX because they're NOT ARM.

    I'm a Microsoft Partner, and assumed that the ISO image of Windows 10 Enterprise for ARM would work okay. However, when trying to install it I get the following error message. Any ideas gratefully received!

    I wouldn't know how to deal with the errors, but I can tell you that I've even tried doing an inplace upgrade from the Insider Standard to Insider Enterprise and while the license activates, I get a "protected boot" type error and have yet to resolve it. Booting from the ISO direct goes nowhere and gives BSOD every time. Something's not compatible somewhere between the Parallels environment and that particular ISO.

    Same here, what I did was install the Pro version and put the Enterprise key on it.

    1) Do i need to Activate this version. The systme is asking for Activation before I can cutomise the themes etc..
    2) I've not been able to install Acrobat DC on the machine. DOes anyone know if this is supported?
    Thank you

    It's Build 21354.
    PS: I was able to activate with my other Win10 Pro key.
    So only question now is the Acrobat DC Compatability.

    Does your UI is slightly lagging compared to macOS or x86 Windows? Animation is not smooth enough.

    Update: After a few attempts and downloading a different Acrobat installer. I managed to get it installed and working well.
