    I can't finish my windows installation.
    When I open Parallels and Windows, the Windows window opens saying, I need to be connected to a network to proceed.
    I have attached a two screenshots, they're in German.

    Anyone, there, who can help?
    Thanks!

    I have this exact issue and have followed the steps above but all it does it tell me I have now lost my internet connection and requests that I reconnect. My Mac is currently connected to the internet, I have tried both wifi and network cable but the installation progress will not move passed this screen

    Hello @NatalieS3 ,

    Kindly perform the below steps to solve the issue:
    1. On the "Let's connect you to a network" page, use the Shift + F10 keyboard shortcut. You may click on keyboard sign from the top of the virtual machine window to access this function. If ever you cannot find the Shift + F10 function, please right-click on the Parallels Desktop icon from the bottom dock > click on Preferences > Shortcuts > Keyboard Menu > Click on the + Sign below on the right side > Select Shift and from the drop down menu select F10 and press OK to save this function.
    2. In Command Prompt, type the OOBE\BYPASSNRO command to bypass network requirements on Windows 11 and press Enter.
    3. The computer will restart automatically, and the out-of-box experience (OOBE) will start again.
    4. Click the "I don't have internet" option.
    5. Click the "Continue with limited setup" option and continue with the installation.

    Thank you!
