Installing a VM Image on a Mac

The corporate VM image policy is checked every time a new VM creation process is started by the user in Parallels Desktop on a Mac computer. If the corporate VM image policy is set (a configuration profile with the VM for Intel Mac or VM for M-series Mac payload exists and has been applied to the license key used by this Parallels Desktop installation), the Parallels Desktop Control Center displays a message inviting the user to download the corporate VM image. If the user accepts the invitation, the VM image download begins and the progress indicator is displayed (note that because of the large size of a VM, the download may take some time). If the user declines, he/she is taken to the Installation Assistant where they can create a virtual machine from scratch.

After the VM image download completes, the image is unpacked, and the virtual machine is registered in Parallels Desktop.
