    Can a virtual machine be able to access the partition with windows on it? So you can either boot up from the partitioned windows via bootcamp OR access that same partitioned windows through parallels for quick access while on OSX?

    Yes, parallels has an option to start up your bootcamp partition in the VM. You'll just need to set it up that way when you install parallels and then have it install parallels tools in the bootcamp partition.

    Yeah Parallel has that option when you install it but I was having problems installing a program while I was on BootCamp.
