I have a MacBook Pro M1 (silicon chip) running Parallels Desktop app. I'm trying to create a Proxmox VM within Parallels, but not having any luck.

I've read that Proxmox is not compatible with silicon chip, but wondering if there's anything I can do to make this work. Thank you for any input.
 
Thanks for your quick reply. It does look like Parallels offers an Ubuntu 22 x86 64-bit emulation version.

What do you mean by "install Proxmox on top of it" ?
 
You can try UTM and emulate PVE there. It uses the Apple internal virtualization infrastructure, so that you have a free alternative to Parallels, VMware Fusion and VirtualBox. I just installed PVE 8 without any problems on my M2.

Hmm. Interesting. Are you able to run Mac OS as a guest with pass through?
