    Hello, I would like ti purchase Parrallels 13 to run it on High Sierra together with 10.8.
    Can you confirm that Parallels 13 works with OS 10.8 ?
    Thanks !

    Hello DelphineJ, Are you trying to install Mac OSX 10.8 as a virtual machine in Parallels Desktop 13?

    Yes, you can run OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.x as a virtual machine in Parallels Desktop 13 installed in high Sierra.

    Thank you very much.
    I want to make partition on the internal disk for 10.8.
    How should I proceed ?
    Should I make the partition and install 10.8 system in it first or should I install Parallels 13 first ?

    You have to install it inside Parallels Desktop using the recovery partition or the installation USB stick.

    Ok. I don't have a recovery partition or USB stick. But it is my computer's native system and I'm still running on it now so it's saved on TimeMachine.
    So I will upgrade to Hi Sierra and then recover it from TimeMachine via Parallels Desktop. Would that do ?

    "it" meaning "10.8 system" in my message

    is it the same process if I decide to install the virtual 10.8 system on an external drive ? (might be my best option so I would just upgrade now to 10.13 without partitioning) ?
