I'm not ready to commit to Yosemite yet as my primary OS. So I thought I'd load up a Parallels VM to try it out.
Although Parallels seems to create the Yosemite .dmg file correctly, it just won't finish loading. I get messages about having to "download additional components" with tens if not hundreds of hours remaining. If I let it run overnight, I wake up to a message that something failed.
So is it not possible to install Yosemite as a Parallels VM? (I'm running Parallels v10.1.0 on a 2014 MacBook Pro) Has anyone successfully gotten this to work?
