    Hi, I would like to clone my PC Windows 10 SSD and migrate it to an External M.2 NVMe SSD which will be used on a 2022 Macbook Air M2 with Parallels Desktop.

    Is this possible, and Is there a step by step guide to accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello, We would like to inform you that cloning a Windows 10 PC to Parallels Desktop can be done only on an Intel mac. M1/M2 Macs do not support Windows from Intel PCs since they are based on the ARM architecture. Thanks.
