Apr 29, 2010

Windows On Mac :: Parallel Bootcamp And Windows OEM

Jul 4, 2010

I read on a another thread that Parallels has Parallels Bootcamp which allows me to install Parallels using only one Windows license. Would this work also with the OEM version of windows as well? Or is the full version of windows needed too?

Applications :: How To Get Parallel Bootcamp

Apr 23, 2010

I just got a i7 15" mbp! I definately have to have bootcamp to run my school's testing software, but i want have parallels run the boot camp partition without me making another VM. I would hate to have double loss of space, but I also want to make sure I can use it on both sides that doesn't mess it up!

I had a mac a long time ago and i got it to read the boot camp with parallel but it then corrupted my bootcamp and I've had double images (waste of space since i am now limited to my ssd size too!!).

Does VMWare fusion 3 do this better? before i do it, i want to make sure it's bug free and does not mess up either side!

Windows On Mac :: Deleting Parallel Set Up

Apr 27, 2009

I just recently got parallels, and someone else set it up for me. The guy only put 8gb on it, and i really need more. I don't wanna deal with expanding and stuff because its too much trouble for something that I have nothing on anyway. Im wondering how to delete the image file, and then create a new partition. And also, if creating a new partition needs the windows cd again, because i don't have it anymore

Windows On Mac :: 7 In Parallel 5 Boots In 2 Seconds

Dec 4, 2009

This really isn't a bad thing, on my iMac i5 with a the stock configuration configured with 2 cores and 3GB of RAM on Windows 7 Profession 32-bit, my VM boots in 2 seconds; the boot is so fast that it displays the Vista-like scroll instead of the 7 splash screen during boot. Basically I'm curious what's going on here? I'd like to do the same on Mac Pro which takes about a full minute for Windows to load up. The drives on my a Mac Pro about 5x faster than the iMac and I have a 4 processors and 4GB of RAM allocated to Windows... Both are running Parallels 5 for VM and both uses 64GB for the virtual disk.

Windows On Mac :: Parallel Desktop - Enable Direct3D?

Oct 23, 2010

So my problem is i installed Parallel Desktop, installed windows 7, 64bit and after i installed Lineage 2 (a game that uses Direct3D) i get an error running the game, were it says i need to enable Direct3D in the DxDiag - but when i run the DxDiag it just tell me that info is not available, so there is nowere i can enable Direct3D :/ I have been googling the issue, but i havent been able to find a solution on how to use/enable Direct3D. However the graphic card i have in my MacBook pro is called Nvidia Geforce GT 330M and does support Direct3D so it must be something that happens because of the mac cross to windows 7 thingy. Also i have been trying to installe the latest drivers from Nvidias website, but i also get an error when i try to install them, saying it cant verufy my hardware - so it must be something about windows not beeing able to detect what kind of graphic card i use cause its on a mac system?? Another thing i notcied was in DxDiag i saw under memory, it only see 1 GB of memory and i have 4 GB available not that it changes anything

My setup:
MacBookPro 2010 model
Core i7 intel processor 2.6 Ghz
4gb memory
Nvidia Geforce GT 330M

Windows On Mac :: Turn Off Internet For Parallel Options

Nov 16, 2010

I'm running Parallels Desktop 4.0 for Mac on Mac OSX 10.4.11. For my Mac, I have one administrator account, and two managed user accounts. My son uses one of the managed user accounts to run Parallels.The issue is that I don't want Parallels to be able to access the internet (more specifically, I don't want my son to be able to use Parallels/windows to access the internet). I know I can turn off the internet in Parallels through the Parallels configuration settings, but it can just be turned right back on. There is no password protection to ensure that the settings aren't changed. Or am I missing something? Is there an administrative password that I can enable to prevent tampering with the Parallels configuration settings?

Software :: Parallel Windows Not Load Up After Restart?

May 8, 2008

Whenever I install Parallel on my imac, with leopard it installs fine and the windows Xp install fine and load up fine. But my problem is whenever I shut my mac down, and when I have to turn my mac on again and i click on Parallel the windows will not load up, only loads up when the windows has just been installed, i have no idea why it wont load once i shut down and turn on my imac?

Windows On Mac :: Vista Taking Control Of Super Drive While Parallel?

Apr 16, 2009

I recently installed 64-bit Vista in a Boot Camp partition. Then Parallels and everything is perfect except...

When I insert a DVD now, Windows automatically takes control of the drive. The only way for me to view the contents of that drive is to shut down Vista in Parallels and then reinsert the disk. Then OS X sees it and fires it up.

Now Ive plugged in other devices like my external drive, and I get a little pop up which asks which system I want to use the device with. Is there a way to get that for DVDs as well?

Does anyone know or have the same problem where pressing the F7, F8, F9 keys (which are previous, stop/pause, and forward) doesn't work in iTunes unless iTunes is the "active" window? I know that in OS X that if i pressed those buttons, it would do it even if I was in another application, but in the Windows 7 version it won't do it if another application is "active." Also, the same applies to the Apple Remote.
