    I have Vista installed with bootcamp. I also have Parallels on my mac os x. I downloaded Parallels Transporter and I want to migrate the Vista partition into parallels so I can run it on parallels in mac os x. How do I do that?

    I've never done that, but Parallels is well documented. Use the manual.

    I pointed Parallels at my BootCamp (XP) partition and it worked without a hitch.

    nevermind it didnt work. I had parallels opened. I went to file, new. I clicked custom, chose vista, selected the amount of ram (752mb) and the option to click Boot Camp was grayed out. Do you know why?

    I'm not entirely sure that Vista is supported with BootCamp + Parallels...search the manual for Vista and see what you come up with.

    Damn, I'll look it up. I would just install Vista using Parallels but it won't accept my Vista CD. The Vista CD worked fine with boot camp though.
