    I am aware that using Parallels Transporter one can migrate a Linux Computer to a VM.

    What I want to do is the opposite. Is there a way to convert a Linux VM to a Linux Computer.

    I realize the major issue, of course, is the drivers, etc.

    If anyone knows of a way this can be done, I'd be grateful.

    This is generally called cloning, and there are plenty of tools out there that work on this, this is exactly the same as cloning a Linux install from one computer to a different computer. Dissimilar hardware being the major issue, but the situation isn't as bad as it is with Windows. You should uninstall Parallels Tools and any specific driver before migrating, also make sure the kernel supports the target hardware. Besides that Google is your friend, example (the specific distro name would be an important variable):

    Note: I think it's better for everybody if I'll just ignore the second post, OK? Or do you want me to reply to its contents also?
