Unable to run Bootcamp based VM after upgrading to Ventura

    Hello all,

    I upgraded my 2020 Intel MBP to Ventura and it seems to have broken Parallels.

    I'm running Parallels 17.1.5, Ventura 13.0.1 and Windows 10. Bootcamp itself still works fine and I can boot into it without issue.

    Whenever I try to launch my Bootcamp based VM I get the following two errors:

    Unable to connect Hard Disk 1
    A file or device required for the operation of Hard Disk 1 does not exist or is used by another process, or you have no permission to access it. The virtual machine will continue running, but the device will be disconnected.

    I checked the package contents and there is an HDD file which does have both read and write permissions. The second error is as follows:

    There is no operating system installed in this virtual machine.
    To install an OS, connect a source with OS installation files, such as a CD, thumb drive, or disk image, and reset the virtual machine. For more information, see Parallels Desktop Help.

    I've tried deleting the VM and creating a new Bootcamp based VM but I get the same errors.

    Any help is appreciated!
