    First, the hardware is fine and no messages are logged by physical machine, the errors are all coming within the VM. I am running latest version of parallels on the new macbook pro with the PCIe-based SSD. This is a FAST SSD, and I can do well over 1.5 Gbytes/sec (that is NOT a typo) so that may be a factor.
    I am using ZFS for these logical drives and all virtual host O/S settings are default.

    The VM itself reports these messages when I have such problems.

    The parallels log file shows thousands of lines like this

    [IDE0] controller reset: st:43867785 gt:14857461

    Along with numerous adjusting I/O size messages such as these
    Adjusting WS.0 -> 512
    Adjusting WS.0 -> 2560
    Adjusting WS.0 -> 3072
    Adjusting WS.0 -> 3072
    Adjusting WS.0 -> 512

    Parallels presents my two virtual drives as IDE disks.
