    I have a VMware Fusion 1.0 virtual machine that I ran the Mac Parallels Transporter on. This created the Parallels equivilant virtual machine but when I attempt to start the virtual machine it fails telling me that I have no operating system.

    I used the Parallels Transporter on a different VMware virtual machine and it worked correctly. Any idea on what to look for with the first virtual machine not being "transported"?

    I open the Parallels Transporter application.
    I click Continue
    I select "Advanced Migration Mode", then click Continue
    I select "From virtual computer", then click Continue
    I select "Entire virtual computer", then click Continue
    I select my VMware Image, then click Continue
    I go with the default destination folder, then click Continue
    I then click Migrate
    After the migration completes, without any errors, I select to open the Parallels VM.
    The VM starts, then reports "There is no operating system installed in the virtual machine".

    Hello,

    after the migration you should create a new VM using .hdd image created by Transporter.
    Did you do this?

    Best regards,

    It did not allow me to do this, after the migration finished of the VMware VM I did the following:

    I close the Parallels VM.
    I open Parallels Transporter
    I click Continue to the Introduction
    I select Advanced, then click Continue
    I select "From virtual computer", then click Continue
    I select "Entire virtual computer", then click Continue
    I select the Parallels .hdd file, then click Continue
    I'm told "You have chosen the virtual machine of unknown type".

    I'm stuck there.
