    Hi,

    I am using an iMac on Catalina (10.15.4) with Parallels Pro 15.1.4 (47270).

    On this machine I have a Boot Camp Windows 10 partition that works (and still works) fine by both directly rebooting to it and accessing it through Parallels.

    As I no longer need to run this as Boot Camp I decided to import into Parallels, which took about 30 seconds. When I start up the new VM it goes straight to Windows Recovery (attached) and I hit "Enter" to try again and again it gives a Recovery screen but with a slightly different error message (also attached).

    I can't help thinking something went wrong during the import as according to Parallels UI the new VM is only taking up 170MB of space and the import of a Boot Camp partition with about 90GB used on a 256GB partition took seconds...!

    Please advise.

    Hi DarrenH3,
    I've got exactly the same problem as you described it, with the same 2 blue screens we are all to familiar with...
    regards, Pete.
