There is no direct support for resizing the Boot Camp Windows volume from inside either macOS or Windows. You need 3rd party software to do this safely.
The current Apps that can do this are Paragon Hard Disk Manager, Paragon
CampTune or Twocanoes' WinClone
Never attempt to resize any other way - you will break something.
Adding some instructions on how to do this so that it works with Parallels too.
Follow all of the instructions above while booted into Windows
natively with Bootcamp, but DON'T ENABLE BITLOCKER YET.
Next, go back to MacOS, fire up Parallels and create the VM from the

You probably were suppose to install Windows to BIOS boot, instead of EFI boot. However, if all the hardware is working, there is no harm in EFI booting.
The fact that you do not see Windows label on the Start Menu is another indicator that you probably were suppose to BIOS boot Windows.
I am not sure why you can not properly select Windows from System ...
There is also a very good possibility you can install Windows 10. I have installed Windows 10 on both a 2007 and a 2011 iMac computers even though Apple does not officially support Windows 10 on either computer.
The easiest method of installing would be to use the optical (DVD) drive. If you have the latest ISO release of Windows 10, then you will need a ...
Unfortunately it looks like that Mac will only support Windows 7
Even your model does not look like it supports Windows 8

pbcopy < dosfile
To paste, use Commandv or
pbpaste | some_command
pbpaste > some_file
Generally speaking logging onto a windows domain from a Mac takes the form of:

If your wireless mouse or keyboard will not work during the installation process, then I assume you have a wired replacement you can temporarily use.
Apple introduced the T2 Security Chip and Secure Boot ...
I read the other day that the files are apparently SQLite files. This Wired article that I just read confirms that. Hence I also just downloaded the portable DB Browser for SQLite, opened the specific file that contains all of the text messages (C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\a293c24c7e1b09dbc0117629de148a13b87013be\3d\...
iExplorer is the app I use on macOS both personally and professionally to access iDevices. There is a Windows version available as well. I've been able to extract text messages and associated images from these messages, too.
Disclaimer: I'm a very satisfied user of iExplorer and have no financial or other interests in Macroplant LLC.
For the benefit of others, I managed to get this working. This is on Mojave by the way.
I had to disable SIP in order to create the VMDK. It just wouldn't create the VMDK until I had disabled SIP (to disable SIP you have to boot your Mac in recovery mode by holding Command+R on start up, then when you're in recovery you open a Terminal - the option is ...
