I run the ARM preview of Windows 11 on Parallels already. But I’ll check out this article to see how to do it for free. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the article ProTruck, this will come in handy for a particular client, I didn't realise it could be done for free

Whilst it will work under Microsofts licencing the device already will need to have an existing licence to use the preview licence.

I’m aways unsure though whenever managing to get Windows to run on a Mac for free as to how long it will work before Microsoft/apple stop it working!

This is handy, I hadn’t seen this one until today. I assumed this was all done via parallels.

This is really helpful to have. We have one client that only buys Macs, but different departments need Windows for specific applications. Great to know Windows will run on Apple silicon.
