    I'm running Windows 11 ARM Insider Preview on my macOS Big Sur.
    I'm using Parallels Desktop 17 for Mac on a Mac Big sur version 11.6 with M! processor and 16 GB RAM.

    Upon installation Windows Updatevstartaed installing Insider Preview Build AFTER this update Windows started misbehaving. Example:

    - Start menu opens but I can't open/start (can't open settings app)
    - Windows Update menu doesn't exist under the Control Panel
    - Windows Insider menu to login and link computer to doesn't exist
    - File explorer takes time to open

    Overall a very buggy experience.
    I had Windows 10 before this on my Mac computer, it was slow, but functioned. This time, Windows 11, isn't useable.

    I hope someone has a solution, an update or a workaround....?
