    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?

    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.
