Boot to SCCM server from virtual machine on an iMac

Tech_20 asked
I have attempted to install a network based image using Microsoft system center configuration manager (SCCM) via Parallels (latest version) from a virtual machine. On other machines (PCs), I can press the F12 key upon booting the virtual machine to go to BIOS and update the settings to enable PXE boot. I have looked up ways to enable the virtual machine on the Intel iMac to boot to the designated SCCM server but with no success.

Please help. Thanks.

if you want to deploy OS image using SCCM on VM, you need to add legacy network card at this case you will find that Vm boot using PXE


That being said, we won't plan to use a legacy network card but instead use an .iso file. That info helps. Thanks, Mai.
