    Hi, this article shows how to move the bootcamp partition from old machine to a new one via an external drive.

    https://kb.parallels.com/113658

    I have done the steps to import Windows 7 Bootcamp to an external drive. However, I want this to be a Virtual Machine of the new Mac because I already installed Windows 10 as a Bootcamp partition in the new Mac. Can you please show me steps on how to do it?
