Cannot assign macOS internal/external partition to Windows virtual machine

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac Home Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac Home Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac Pro Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac Pro Edition

Symptoms

I have multiple internal/external partitions in macOS, I cannot assign them to Parallels Desktop as additional disks therefore they are not visible in Windows.

Cause

macOS limitation.

Resolution

As a workaround configure the machine to be able to see macOS partitions in Windows using Parallels Desktop Sharing feature.

Open the virtual machine's configuration > Options > Sharing > Share Mac > under Share folders select All disks.

NOTE: If partitions did not appear, restart Windows virtual machine.
