    You don't need to, but if you want to activate Windows, you can use any unused license key for Windows 10 (and apparently 7 or 8 too) Pro. A Home key won't work.

    So far so good. On a M1 MacBook Pro running Parallels 17 with Windows Insider program and Windows 10 build that just migrated to Windows 11 ARM via the Beta Channel. I was on the Dev Channel but did not see any updates. Once I switched to Beta I started seeing updates. Runs smooth for web browsing, YouTube, and MS Office products.

    Is anyone else having serious problems with this? Whenever I start using Windows 11 for a few minutes, then no buttons will work, and content is not appearing in Edge. Something is seriously wrong, and I have reinstalled Windows 11 twice now.

    I had this issue. This happens after you install the update. If you install the clean windows, and do not allow it to update, everything is fine. Hoping for a solution soon.

    Thanks! I'm glad it's not just me. I thought I was going crazy.

    Apparently, we need to get out of the Dev channel and move to the Beta channel, but they seems impossible.

    I have had a similar issue where buttons (like the ones to power off in settings) don't respond as quickly as I would expect. Have had it for a while - nothing in my case related to Windows updates, which I was getting from the Insider Program and since quiting the insider program and finally getting around to activating my Windows 11 PRO ARM installation. Only issue with Edge is that it occasionally seems slower than I remember running Windows 10 under Bootcamp, but that is expected running Windows under Bootcamp vs Parallels in my experience.

    How were you able to quit the insider program and get into the release branch of the windows 11 ARM from the dev branch (which is what the insider program gives you)?

    You can't because the Dev Channel builds are higher than the general release build. SWANDY, like many of us who used Parallels on M1 for a while, used the opportunity to switch to the Beta Channel while Dev and Beta Channels were on the same build for a short time and could then leave the Insider Program.
    What you can do is create an iso for build 22000.160 on uupdump.net which should update to the current release build 22000.258. But you will need to make a clean install with that.

    I tried to create an ISO from the uupdump.net sources, but got an error. Any help?

    Sorry, I don't know what caused that error. Maybe a corrupt download?
