Just got the Parallels Desktop 9 which is great but it is still installing Chrome OS 14. But it says it is up-to-date when you try update it.
How do I bypass this thing?
Since Googlel only release Chrome OS for (their) official devices, you can't simply download it, but you see the discussion at https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/chromium-os-discuss/8VNf4TVRyf4 . You should be able to get an image from http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/ and import it into Parallels.
I always had issues with the mouse and keyboard not working after importing it into parallels. Worked ok in Virtualbox but I don't really use it.
The reason why keyboard and mouse is not working in Parallels is that they are not providing sufficient drivers for it to work under the OS.
