Cause

WAET stands for Windows ACPI Emulated Device Table. It is an optimization tool for virtualized guest OS from Microsoft.
WAET support will be introduced in future version of Parallels Desktop for Mac.

Resolution

Meanwhile you can disable WAET support in Parallels Desktop for Mac:

2. Copy/paste the following line there:
kernel.waet.enable=0


3. Save the changes and start your virtual machine.
