Is it possible to start into Recovery/Internet recovery mode in a virtualized Mac OS X in Parallels?
It would come in handy to take screenshots of those UIs or running apps to exemplify some steps especially here at askdifferent.

I've found a way:
Select boot device at startupin the virtual machine
Boot Maintenance Manager
Boot from file
In Yosemite the mouse acts flaky though and i can't hoover the mouse over the menubar (e.g. to start /Utilities/Terminal) - it immediately jumps to the framing window. Menu navigation with CtrlF2 to circumvent this malfunction doesn't work.
In Mavericks everything seems to work bug-free.
**Addendum: You may access the menubar with your pointer after enabling FileVault 2 on the VM's system drive. **
