    Hi guys,
    I installed Wnidows 7 using boot camp and it is working fine. Now if I install Parallel destop 5.0, do I have reinstall Windows 7 all over again or is there a way that I can use the existing partition by boot camp without having to create a new virtual machine by Parallel desktop ? Please help . Thanks.

    It says right on the Parallels website that you can have Parallels point to a boot camp partition...

    If you already activated the Windows installation in boot camp, you will most likely have to reactivate Windows once more. At least that's what I've read in my research about this.

    Thank you very much. I'll try to do that this weekend.
