Why would Parallels describe this "bug" as function in the Parallels Desktop 13 User's Guide?? (http://download.parallels.com/desktop/v13/docs/en_US/Parallels Desktop User's Guide.pdf)
6 If you selected any device except for a hard disk, the corresponding device with a typical configuration is added at once and ready for use.
If you selected a hard disk, you should specify some parameters:
• The hard disk type: a new image file or an existing one. Select Boot Camp if you want to add an existing Boot Camp partition as a hard disk to your virtual machine.
• The hard disk location. Provide the path on your Mac to the existing image file or the path and name for the new image file. By default, Parallels Desktop offers to save the new image file in the virtual machine PVM bundle.
Boot Camp Partitions
With Parallels Desktop, you can choose how to use your Boot Camp Windows XP (or later) operating system: to boot in it natively (via Boot Camp) or in a virtual machine (via Parallels Desktop). A Boot Camp Windows partition can be used as a bootable disk or as a data disk in Parallels virtual machines.
I expect this feature to work again with the next update. This feature has always been described and was not a bug!
