    Hi,
    I just installed the latest update to the Windows 11 ARM Preview update.
    After the update has been installed successfully. The VM starts, and shows the Windows logo and the loading spinner. After about 1min the loading spinner and the logo disappear and leave black screen. I can see the windows mouse courser, but I am not able to control anything. The screen stays black no matter which key I am pressing.

    Does anyone experience similar issues?

    Kind regards
    Alexander

    I tried to restore, reset, reinstall the Windows instance using the tools offered by windows. With F2 + F8 I could still access them.
    Nevertheless, everything failed and I will now delete the instance and download a new version of Windows 11

    Installing from the current Beta results in the same issue. Black screen with no interactivity. Now there's not even a coursor appearing. It looks like the current version is of the preview is not supported by parallels.
    I installed this build: Windows11_InsiderPreview_Client_ARM64_en-us_22598.VHDX

    Hello @Nazeemabanu@Parallels,
    I am running macOS 12.4 and I have an M1 Pro Chip. Before the last Windows 11 update everything was working fine, but the recent update does no longer work. I reinstalled windows using exactly this tutorial, but it resulted in the same issue. So as already said I'd guess that Parallels needs an update to support the newest Windows 11 version or that the newest Windows 11 version has an issue that results in exactly this behaviour.

    I managed to get a Windows 11 installation running. To get it working, I used the Parallels installer by clicking on "Get Windows 11 from Microsoft," and I did not download the vhdx file manually. On the first try, the installation got stuck at a loading screen. The second time I tried this method, it finally worked.
    In the end, this seems to be not the most current version since it offers me to install an update. I will delay the update for some time and hope that the next update will fix the issues.
