    Hi there,

    I have Ubuntu 20.04 installed on a separate drive on my Mac running 10.15.7. Will parallels allow me to run the native install (similar to what it does for a boot camp windows install) while I'm running macOS?

    Thanks!!

    Were you ever able to figure this out? I am trying to do the same thing!

    Hi Mike and Jacob, it is not possible to run a native Linux as you mentioned above as a virtual machine, the best way is to install a separate Virtual Machine with the desired Linux Operating system.
