    Hi everyone!!

    I use OSX 10.13.4 and Parallels Desktop 13.

    I imported windows 10 from bootcamp - work fine.
    No I tried to import windows 8.1 from another PC. That doesn't worked. I tried "network" and "external drive" method to copy the data but I always get the same error. I uploaded a screenshot...
    Can anyone held me??

    Kind regards,

    Hello NickK4.
    Is this Windows 8.1 a virtual machine file (a file with the extension '.pvm')?

    Can you let us know the file system of the external hard drive you used for moving Windows 8.1?

    It is a NTFS System
    Do you mean that?

    Thanks.
    I did everything what is mentioned there. There where some system errors that are fixed now.
    But after doing it all, I created a new .pvm file on an external drive and migrated it again, but got the same error....
