I see, that means that the Mac BIOS doesn't really come into play. And
indeed Movitz should work with Parallels VM. It might be that they
have made some shortcuts or mistakes in the BIOS bootup simulation
(this seems to be a rather new product). It's kind of hard to say what
might be the problem based on your description.. You could perhaps try
to pad the floppy image to be of the correct 1.44MB size, in case
that's why its being considered invalid. Is it possible to get some
more detailed messages from the VM? I don't have an intel Mac myself,
so I can't test it.
