I cannot start Windows 8 based on Boot Camp Virtual Machine on a new MacBook 2013
Virtual machine hangs on 'Trying to boot from SATA 1...'
- Download bootcamp-enable-efi.zip from the attachment. Move it to the Desktop.
- Extract bootcamp-enable-efi.sh file from the downloaded archive to Desktop
- launch Terminal (it is located in Applications -> Utilities)
In Terminal type in (press Return after each line):
cd ~/Desktop sudo chmod +x bootcamp-enable-efi.sh
(Enter your password, you will not see it on typing)
perl -pi -e 's/\r\n/\n/g' bootcamp-enable-efi.sh ./bootcamp-enable-efi.sh <path-to-VM>
<path-to-VM> is a path to Bootcamp-based virtual machine, e.g. Windows 8.pvm.
To make it more simple you can just locate your Boot Camp Virtual machine .pvm file in Finder (by default it is located in
/Users/username/Documents/Parallels), then drag-and-drop that file from Finder into Terminal window right next to
the correct string will look something similar to this:
./bootcamp-enable-efi.sh /Users/appleseed/Documents/Parallels/My\ BootCamp\ Windows8.pvm
Press Return and wait for the script to fix the issue.
The successful output will be:
Checking registered VM list... Searching bootcamp hdd... Copying efi partition... Operation needs root permissions Password: Configuring disk image... Enabling efi boot... The VM has been successfully configured.
