For anyone using Parallels, UTM, or VMWare Fusion, here is a little tip.
Do *NOT* install classic shell, open shell, or anything that messes with the UI designed for x86. Upon logging into the system, the desktop UI will not start.
Steps to fix are as follows.
After logging into your VM, press ctrl+shift+escapel Task Manager should open.
Find the 'new task' button and press.
On the dialog that comes up, enter appwiz.cpl
This should bring up the old and familiar add/remove programs control panel window.
Uninstall any program you think may mess with the UI and/or resolution.
Close this window and restart your VM.
You may have to close task manager and re-open for it to become accessible again to shutdown or restart.
To restart from the new task dialog, enter shutdown -r -t 00
This tells windows to restart immediately.
