    Parallels version is 17.0.1 (51482)
    I will use prl_convert xxx.vmdk --allow-no-os to convert the vmdk file as a virtual machine hdd, but when I upgrade to Parallels 17, this command fails and the error is'The source virtual disk contains no operating system.' Even though I This error still occurs when using --allow-no-os, but it can be converted to a hdd file in version 16. How to solve this problem? My operating system is Big Sur 11.6
