Got a quick question for any parallels guys out there. I've got an external drive that has a bootable copy of Windows 10 on it. Is there any way to make this work in parallels without losing anything or do I have to start from scratch?

Hmm, if memory serves, Parallels automatically scans for bootable Windows volumes. But honestly I can't say with any great certainty if that's just applicable to BootCamp on the same drive.

What I would suggest is downloading the 30-day trial of Parallels; so no money wasted and you'll know for sure. :)

I should have added that this drive was pulled from my of. Just wasn't sure if I can do anything with it.
