    yeah, it will boot the disc just like your installing it on a non-apple computer, it's really cool actually

    if you have the newer version of parallels, it will do 90% of the installation for you

    hint: windows is pretty easy to download if you know where to look. hell, i think parallels will even do win98 if you still have a disc of that sitting around

    it's cool as hell :bigthumb: I had a hell of a time getting it to work because of winblows updates + activation, but I finally got it working, and it's great... coherency is the fucking SHIT :bowdown:

    don't bother with the torrent of parallels, its under 50mb btw
    however, whenever i would go to activate my virtual machine, the background would go black and it would tell me i would need to restart my computer by holding down the power button
    i could never get the torrent of parallels working. besides the one that is on piratebay is old anyways


    hint: download the parallels trial directly from parallels...then look for a serial on the piratebay page, if the old torrent is still up
    any trouble pm me

    honestly for $80, parallels is a steal, if you like the trial please buy it :hs: they might be the hardest-working company in Mac software right now, just look at what features get added each time a new beta comes out :eek3: I'm definitely getting my hands on a legit copy when my trial runs out. :cool:

    not to mention they're going to virtualize opengl / directx soon :eek5:
