How to install 1.0 on Parallels

I am posting this for anyone else who needs help, maybe I was being dumb before figuring this out but this is the method I got it to work correctly:

  1. Flash the .img.xz to a USB via Balena

  2. Create a Debian/GNU VM and don’t select a source.

  3. Before starting configure your preferred VM config, and go to Hardware > Boot Order

  4. Check External Device, and select your USB from the drop down

  5. Then choose Advanced, and select EFI 64-bit. It is important that you do this before completing the setup new VM Wizard, as this option seems to vanish afterwards, which was the main cause of my trouble.

  6. Boot it and proceed with normal steps to complete install.

I hope this helps others!
