    Hi all,
    I have an Intel MBP with Bootcamp and Parallels (Windows imported from Bootcamp). I recently bought a second MBP with an M1 chip and, unfortunately, it does not support Bootcamp (which means Winclone also does not work).
    Do you know how I can clone the system to the new MBP so that I can use it with parallels?

    Thanks!

    It is not possible to clone the entire Intel Mac to M1 Mac as the architecture changes many apps will not work, many will have a version for M1 Macs that can only run in it. Similarly, Parallels Desktop also has a separate setup that needs to be installed on M1 Mac. Intel-based Windows VM's are not compatible with M1 Mac, so you cannot move and run a VM from Intel to M1 Mac.
