    First off sorry if this has been posted before. I searched but couldn't find anything on it.

    I'm planning on moving to a silicon mac in the next year or so and want to start fresh without all the junk I've built up on my system over the years. I would like to get a head start with a VM of Big Sir or Monterey and wanted to know if it is possible to transfer a OSX Parallels VM directly to a HD/SSD of a new Mac via Migration assistant or some other way ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Also would Time Machine work ?

    Pretty much answered my own question. TM backup to Migration Assistant restore seems to be the easiest way to go.

    I've used both a TM backup and a Carbon Copy Cloner backup with Migration Assistant to create my macOS VM.
