    For the last day or so, I've been trying to rsync both macOS 12 and 13 virtual machines (.macvm) onto new mac metal instances.

    I am creating the virtual machine on one instance, and it works great, but when I rsync the `.macvm` to a new instance and try to run the vm from parallels desktop, the screen is black for the vm. Running `arp -a` reveals that it's not connected to the network whatsoever. Given that we can't `prlctl enter` or `prlctl exec` for mac ARM vms, I'm not sure that it's even successfully being launched.

    I feel like I'm missing something here and struggling to find the solution in the docs. Is there a better way to go about this?
