    I find myself frequently building and testing USB boot devices. Usually they are DOS booting USB flash drives.
    Parallels seems to make this task very difficult. Can someone please share step by step instructions on how to make a Parallels guest machine that always boots USB flash drives in a straightforward fashion?

    Hi, did you try to change VM configuration -> hardware -> Boot order -> and lift up the external device?
    Will it work for you?

    Boot from USB: Windows
    Press the Power button for your PC.
    During the underlying startup screen, press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10. ...
    At the point when you decide to enter BIOS Setup, the arrangement utility page will show up.
    Utilizing the bolt keys on your console, select the BOOT tab. ...
    Move USB to be first in the boot grouping.

    Connect the USB flash drive to a new PC. Turn on the PC and press the key that opens the boot-device selection menu for the computer, such as the Esc/F10/F12 keys. Select the option that boots the PC from the USB flash drive. Windows Setup starts.
