    I'm running windows 11 on M1 iMac, but this was totally by accident. I had auto updates and restarted my machine after what I thought was Win 10 update. It seems to be running but have did any performance test yet. They made the windows bar like the Mac Doc.

    Yeah installed 11 (aka 10 SP2) last night. Seems to be fine for me too.

    TPM will be a problem on release.. since it's required, but I suspect Parallels will address that before release. It'd be nice if MS allows people to buy 11 for Arm this time around.. guess we'll see.

    Same situation here. With Windows 11 there are several performance issues. Had to restore an image prior to Windows update

    I have been able to install Windows 11 arm64 in Parallels on my M1 MacBook Pro 11. This thing is FAST! If you care to know how to do it then here, you go. It was easy. This will give you a bare metal install right from an iso. Can't get a cleaner install than this ;-)

    This solution is derived from (588) Windows 11 ARM is FINALLY HERE! M1 Mac Install Tutorial - Parallels VM + Game Benchmark Comparison - YouTube

    - Using uupdump.net create the two amr64 iso (win10 and win11)
    - Mount win11 iso
    - Mount win10 iso
    - Copy the win10 iso files to a new folder
    - Replace the win10 iso files /sources/install.wim with /sources/install.wim from the win11 iso
    - Create new iso from combined files in new folder:

    .\bin\cdimage.exe -bootdata:1#pEF,e,b"D:\iso\win11arm64\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin" -o -m -u2 -udfver102 D:\iso\win11arm64 win11arm64.iso

    - Use to install win11 on parallels for m10

    Windows 11 for Mac in the works, Parallels confirms
    https://www.imore.com/windows-11-mac-works-parallels-confirms

    "Since Windows 11 has just been announced recently, the Parallels Engineering team is waiting for the official Windows 11 Insider Preview build to start studying changes introduced in the new OS to deliver full compatibility in future Parallels Desktop updates," Nick Dobrovolskiy, SVP of Engineering and Support told iMore. Microsoft's first Insider preview build came out on Monday, but the rollout was a bumpy one and it doesn't include all of the new features that are coming to Windows 11 later this year such as Microsoft Teams integration or support for Android apps.

    The company did not go beyond "future Parallels Desktop updates" in terms of a timeframe, but added, "we will surely do everything that's possible to make it happen." Parallels' current version for macOS, Parallels Desktop 16 is optimized for macOS Big Sur, and the company has publicly stated that it is testing Parallels on the macOS Monterey Beta "to ensure full compatibility as soon as it is released."

    You can install Windows 10 ARM64 in your virtual machine and it will update automatically to Windows 11 Insider Build.

    Hi,
    Fix is more simple. I have Win11 ARM works correctly in Parallels 16.5. MacBook Pro M1

    Steps:
    1- Create ISO in UUPDump
    2- Extract ISO content in your hard disk
    3- Replace in source folder appraiserres.dll files
    4- Run setup.exe

    Actually, it will attempt to install Windows 11 but stops because it wants you to Fix your PC, which ultimately means it can't find TPM 2.0. I've left my M1 MBA as is and hopefully it will continue to work with the last updated version of Windows 10. It would have been nice if it updated enough to push out the printspooler fix, maybe it did maybe it didn't.

    You have to create Win 11 ISO in the same language as the original Win 10 that you have to keep the applications. If it is another language, it deletes the applications (it indicates during installation)

    I tried dong the things others mentioned then went backwards in the forum and found all I had to do was restart Windows and do the update again. This time it said it needed to fix some things so I went ahead and let it do its thing for a few minutes, then it continued to download and install Windows 11 ARM. It took about 20 minutes or so, restarted, Parallels installed their tools so restarted again and it's now running.

    Wow!! My ex-father-in-law is going to hate it but I don't think it will run on his PC anyway. The GUI looks much closer to a Mac with the dock, which means everything is somewhere different. A 94 year old will not be happy with these changes and I bet a lot of regular Windows users won't be happy either. Either way, it's running and not worrying about TPM, unless---- Parallels pushed out a fix or Microsoft made some changes to not worry about TPM right now during the preview. It's now running more regular updates.

    I think it depends on how old your Windows 10 image is and if you were a member of Insiders before a certain date. If you create a new Windows 10 ARM64 VM and try to update to Windows 11, you'll get the TPM error. Messing around with ISO files is your only chance, until Parallels bring out TPM2.0 emulation.

    I've been testing Windows 10 ARM for a few months, updating it several times.

    Anybody having trackpad issues when running windows 11? My trackpad is pretty much limited to point and click- can't scroll at all. Looking at the settings in windows, there is no trackpad options- only mouse. Didn't have any of these issues with windows 10. Anyone have any tips?
    Thanks!

    When I run "setup.exe" inside the ISO folder, the installation begins but then ask me for the "product key".....

    Just got the Windows 11 update on my M1 MBP running Monterey. So far so good. Both MacOS dev beta and Win 11 beta are running with Parallels perfectly. It is running the Win 11 beta better than my Razer Blade Advanced 15 (2021) did on bare metal... less buggy at least (Win 11 sucks at Thunderbolt currently).

    Finally found a way to use the M1 MBA's trackpad to do something other than point and click. It worked scrolling when in Settings looking for information on mouse settings. If you have a built-in trackpad, I would think Parallels would need to include drivers for that in their Tools installation. I checked Parallels settings and they don't mention anything about a trackpad either so I assume (bad idea) normal built-in trackpad use is built into Parallels but not necessarily external trackpads. I'd contact Parallels service directly on how they handle trackpads. Not sure how much they read these forums.
