    I tried the manual installation method of Mac OS on a. VM as I need more hard drive space and have run into the following problem.
    Parallels 19 pro
    All the steps work fins until get to "prlctl start macvm_test"
    I keep getting a error - The virtual machine is not registered in the virtual machine directory on your Mac.
    I can see it in the Control centre, and then select it there nothing happens.
    Anyone manage to successful create a Mac OS VM with a custom hard drive size ?
    This is rather annoying.

    Instructions wrong? prlctl start works for me, if I pick the VmName from the directory:
    grep VmName /Library/Preferences/Parallels/vmdirectorylist.desktop.xml
