Symptoms

The error comes up when starting the virtual machine:

Unable to connect to Hard Disk

Possible Reasons & Resolution

Make sure you didn't mount your virtual drive to the Mac desktop. You could do it by right-clicking on PVM bundle which is usually located at your Home folder/Parallels and choosing Open With --> Parallels Mounter. If that's the case, please unmount it by right-clicking on the drive on the desktop and selecting Eject.
