    I need to import a bootcamp petition. However, there is no option in the File menu for importing a bootcamp partition, as is shown in your knowledge base. There are only two options: New and Open. I have Parallels 14 Pro edition. Please help. Thanks. -- Carl

    Have you created a Bootcamp virtual machine? Is it working fine? If it is then shutdown Windows, right click on the VM directly in Control Center and select Import.

    Ajith, No at the time of my last post I had not created a VM in Parallels. The problem was that the Bootcamp partition was not mounting. I had to delete Paragon NTFS program, and then I could mount Bootcamp partition. Once I did that, the Import option appeared in the Menu. At that point the import concluded successfully. Now, however, I have another problem that I've posted about in another thread. I have 100 percent Disk Usage in the VM, even when I turn off Sharing>Access Windows folders and exclude the Bootcamp partition from Spotlight searches. This renders the VM unusable as it is slow beyond belief. If I can't resolve this issue soon, I will ask for a refund, as I bought Parallels 14 just about a week ago.

    Again, my problem is 100% Disk Usage, not CPU usage.
     
  6. Please make sure that the Windows is up to date. Also, check for the Disk Usage in the native bootcamp partition and update the results.

    No problem with disk usage when I boot into Bootcamp, only when I'm using the Bootcamp VM under Parallels in Mac OS (Mojave).
