I believe you're saying you had windows on a Boot Camp partition on the old computer, and would like to use the image you created of that with Winclone, as the basis for a virtual machine in Parallels. If this is the case, your best option is to go into your Windows partition on the old machine, and download Parallels Transporter from here:

This program will duplicate your Windows system in a file structure that can then be imported into the Parallels Desktop program running on your Mac. Hope that helps, let me know if that works, and if you need additional assistance.
