Restoring Parallels VMs

After restoring Parallels VMs from a backup they couldn't find their hard disks. Acronis says to use the recreate_pd_hdd.sh script to fix that. But even after running that script against the VMs, the Linux VM has hard disk errors and won't boot and the Windows 10 VM turns black and remains so forever.

Did anybody manage to restore a Parallels VM from an Acronis backup?

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for your posting! If the script from the article https://kb.acronis.com/content/49198 doesn't help, I'm afraid the only option would be restoring the whole Mac image that will contain Parallels VMs with the correct configuration. Refer to Recovering your Mac for more details.

Thank you,
