I am using a bootcamp partition for Parallels desktop. This bootcamp partition is much too big, and there is practically no more room left for the OSX partition. Since I am not using bootcamp any longer, I therefore now want to "migrate" my bootcamp partition to Parallels. I started Parallels Transporter in Windows, and Transporter created two files on an external drive: wnx.hdd (50,813,079 mb) and winxp.pvs (1 mb); both files are located in the directory "New Windows XP" on the external HD volume called "noontec external." If I try to boot Parallels from that external drive I get an error message, telling me that one of the files cannot be "locked out", whatever that means. ("Unable to lock out the configuration file /Volumes/noontec external/New Windows XP/winxp.pvs") If I leave the external drive plugged in, my original parallels installation no longer starts and parallels tells me that now TWO bootcamp installations are competing with each other. When I unplug the external drive, things work again... I cannot copy the wnx.hdd file to the harddrive of my Powebook because there is not enough space, and I hesitate to create the required space by deleting the bootcamp partition since I'm afraid that later nothing will work. -- I installed Transporter on my PC and on my Mac. Both are running the latest Parallels Desktop (3188) with the built in Transporter (1080). -- Any bright idea how to proceed?
