But the later one makes a difference without any additional effort. Parallels have made it easy now to install the Microsoft Windows on Mac computers. It is a virtualization solution that allows the Mac users to run both OS X and Windows 10 at the same time without restarting Mac every so often so as to swap between two operating systems.

Storage: As Windows 10 needs around 11 GB of hard drive space, your Mac should have enough space so as to accommodate both Parallels and Windows 10 on the hard disk.
Windows 10 product key: Needless to say, however you should have a Windows 10 ISO (x64 works fine) so as to install it in a virtualization machine. 
In addition to these points, it is also necessary to be in touch with reliable Parallels technical support so as to avoid any kind of technical hurdles that may come in the way while installing the virtualization software.
