    I have 2 MS-DOS 6.22 images, one with Win 3.1, that have been working under VirtualBox. But when I try to import them into a new Parallels 15 install, I get a DOS error message that says this is not a bootable drive. Any way around this? I thought I may be able to do a clean install of DOS and then maybe mount the images as another hard drive and copy the files over. But doing a clean install of DOS seems to be a bit of a long process, I was hoping there was a quicker way of doing it with an image known to be working under VB. I'm trying to put my old DOS based BBS back up as a telnet BBS, and Parallels seems to be easier to work with when it comes to moving files into and out of the VM.

    Thanks.
