SymptomsOn some newer Macs Parallels Desktop will not show the Virtual Machines list after migrating to the new system.
FixThe issue has been fixed in Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac Build 9370.
Please use the instructions in the above article for obtaining and installing the new build.
If for some reason you do not wish to upgrade, you may use the following quick workaround:
1. Start Parallels Desktop
2. Go to Parallels Desktop menu -> Preferences
3. Switch to Appearance tab
4. Uncheck the "Virtual machine window" checkbox in "Animate" group
5. Click OK to apply changes.
6. Quit Parallels Desktop and start it again.
7. VM list will appear on the screen after that.
Note: The list is likely to appear partially in the top right part of the screen. In that case you need to drag it to the middle of the screen to get full access.
