If Your Processor Does Not Support Hardware Virtualization

If your computer hardware has no virtualization support, you can only create virtual machines but not run them.

To successfully run Parallels virtual machines, you must upgrade your computer’s CPU (and motherboard, if necessary).

For best performance, it's recommended to run virtual machines on virtualization-capable hardware with the following Intel and AMD CPUs:
