    I am currently on a Mac, using Parallels to run a Windows VM. I also have a native Windows computer. I'd like to transfer my Windows virtual machine to the real Windows machine where it can run as the native OS with all settings and apps intact. I am guessing that the process would be: convert my Parallels VM to a bootable version, put it on an internal or external drive, plug that into my Windows computer and boot from it. Is this possible? Is there another way to get an exact copy of my VM running as the native OS on a real Windows computer?

    Thanks in advance :)

    It is not possible to transfer Windows for a virtual machine to a real PC but you can use Windows backup option to create a backup disk and apply it on fresh Windows installation on a PC.
