5 users found this article helpful

Periodically Apple updates their cloud infrastructure and some of you might have issues with creating a macOS Monterey 12  virtual machine (VM) on Mac computers with Apple M1 chips in Parallels Desktop 17. When it takes place, attempts to download a macOS Monterey 12 VM from the list of Free Systems result in Failed to create a bootable disk image or Operation failed error messages.

Estimated downtime

The issue is supposed to be fixed within a short period. 

Proposed solution

We kindly advise you to wait a bit and try creating a virtual machine after some time.
