I wanted to confirm that I have the same problem and will attempt to answer any questions about the issue as well.
The installation appears to go smoothly at first.
The desktop login shows up but the Parallels installation assistant keeps spinning.
If you wait you will eventually see a black screen briefly that says:
Parallels Guest Tools were installed sucessfully! Please, reboot your
OS to finish the installation of Parallels Guest Tools. mv: cannot
stat '/opt/prl-tools-installer/Sgdm' : No such file or directory mv:
cannot stat '/opt/prl-tools-installer/Skdm' : No such file or
Then the VM restarts and you see the Elementary OS logo.
Then you get the black screen with only the top right icons.
Then icons respond to clicks and you can Restart and Shutdown using that icon.
But the system is not functioning correctly.
Details of my hardware and software:
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012)
- macOS Mojave 10.14
- Parallels Desktop 13.3.2 (43368) for Mac Home Edition
- Attempted to install Elementary OS 5.0-stable.20181016
