Downloading and installing the ARM version of Windows 10 on the new M1 Macs is actually very simple. All you need is a Parallels account, a copy of Windows 10 ARM (free), and about 10 minutes!
In this video I walk you through the exact step-by-step process and show you how to get Windows 10 running on your M1 Mac. This tutorial is meant to be brief so if you have any issues or questions please leave them in the comment section below!
Please note that this is the ARM version, which currently is the only version of Windows officially supported through Parallels. Some apps have not been updated to run on ARM (as they are x86 based), so your results may vary.
