In a short answer. Yes.

I have done this about a month ago. Installed, from the ISO image(s)
rather smoothly & quickly.

I have done this successfully. You need an iso (file or disk, full
install or netinstall, as you please).


Follow the instructions with Parallels for configuring the emulated
environment, and installing the software. Parallels defines the basic
"hardware" that the Debian system will run on.
