    Hello. I have Macbook Pro running Parallels v 10.2.2. Right now, I have Windows 7 installed and have reserved a copy of Windows 10. I happened to click on the Get Windows 10 icon on my menu bar and it showed that there is a problem with updating to Windows 10 on this Mac. The error says that 'This PC can't run Windows 10. It doesn't meet system requirements.' Then it says About Your PC. Here's why Windows 10 can't be installed on this PC.
    Parallels Display Adapter (WDDM). The display manufacturer hasn't made your display compatible with Windows 10. Check with the manufacturer for support.
    Is there a fix for this.

    Thanks.

    It seems like this would be a universal problem for anyone trying to upgrade, but here is my problem report 70480953.
    Was really hoping to be able to upgrade day 1 :(

    Same here, when trying to upgrade 8.1 to Windows 10. Parallels Display Adapter (WDDM) The display manufacturer hasn't made your display compatible with Windows 10. Check with the manufacturer for support. Bit disappointed that this hasn't been sorted for Windows 10 launch day. :-( report is 70538201

    I too am having the same problem getting Win10 to install. Since there are a few who submitted reports, I'm just hanging back on this one to see what the resolution is

    Add me to the list with this problem. Odd that it let me reserve the copy of Windows 10, but didn't throw up an error message until I tried to do the actual upgrade. Microsoft is shifting the blame to Parallels saying to check with the device manufacturer for a solution. From what I've read, Parallels is blaming MS for not including the driver in the upgrade software. It seems like this should have been picked up before the roll-out.

    Totally unacceptable. The folks at Parallels did not anticipate this being an issue? Windows 10 release has been planned for months. Just finding out about it after the release? Unbelievable!

    Maybe, just maybe, the folks at Windows shipped a final version that was significantly different than the developer builds, and at midnight they were not available to make the necessary changes required to get it running for us unlucky few. Maybe, just maybe, you should let them do their work and show some fortitude and patience.

    Totally agree with MitchP49. Unacceptable. Just paid for Parallels 10 upgrade to find out I'll have to wait for the Development Team work it out with Microsoft. So amateur!!!

    To try things out, I downloaded the Win10 ISO file, and launched it from my Win8.1 VM. It did install, update and activate properly, although it didn't keep my programs (Moved them to C:\Windows.old). I also had to reinstall Parallels Tools, but mostly everything else seems to be fine. Not smooth, but at least was able to run Win10 today. I needed it for work. If anybody wants to try this, I would recommend backing up your image and/or creating a snapshot first.

    This is an absolute disgrace.
    Agree this is a joke, they have even locked down their Facebook page so you can't make any comments ! Used Parallels for years and thinking of jumping to VM, not impressed!
