I finally decided to install Parallels in my MacBook Pro. I’ve started working on various .Net + MSSQL projects again so it only made sense to have these tools available in my Mac in addition of having it already setup in my Lenovo ThinkPad W541.

During my MSSQL installation process in Windows 10 in Parallels, I encountered the Global Key error ” Restart computer” – failed. Of course I had already tried restarting my Windows 10 in Parallels, and restarting my entire MacBook computer multiple times, but the error was still there. After searching for a solution online, the only answer that worked for me was to shutdown my Windows 10 from the Command Line using shutdown -r -f -t 0
