    ... and I have no need for them... I just want to be cool, and be able to show my friends that I have all the newest windows stuff and OSX on the same computer...


    I can't wait until they are all loaded...

    I've been natively running Vista (enterprise, official release, legit) for about a week already. It runs like a dream.

    that's a lot of crap to install that you don't intend to use. a screenshot would take much less disk space ;)

    Is office 2007 slated for a Mac Universal release?

    Word and Excel 2007 start about 10 times faster from within parallels than 2004 does running on a MBP.

    i downloaded parallels from a torrent, everytime i would try to boot the VM, the screen would go black and i would have to do a reboot holding down the button.

    i downloaded the demo directly from parallels, totally awesome. i was going to buy it, then i found a serial for it.

    if anyone has a 17" mbp, be aware that you will have video issues. with 15" mbp the display looks great. ati has shit for drivers right now, so if i use my 1680x1050 resolution, the driver stops every few seconds and goes black then comes back. if i bring it down to 1440x900 then it looks stretched but works fine.... damn ati

    I used to have my Macbook all pimped out with windows stuff, then i stopped caring. I never used it, and it took up to much harddrive space.

    Option doesn't work?? :eek4:

    Regardless, from the windows Control Panel, there's a startup volume selection panel - I'm pretty sure you can just choose the OSX drive as your startup volume and reboot.

    i took a shit this morning that is better than vista.

    and this project to show off seems like a terrible way to spend a lot of system resources.

    the option key worked for me :dunno:

    don't delete any partitions, as many outdated online guides will tell you to do.
