    hey all,

    I've bootcamp set up on my 2011 MBP but I can't boot my bootcamp partition from parallels I read somewhere that It was possible. Is there any guide on this?

    I'll like to boot with bootcamp to play games and use parallels with bootcamp when i need to run IE for work apps.

    Thanks,
    David

    You can use your windows partition that was created by bootcamp within parallels. Its basically the same thing as creating a windows VM but you're using the already created windows install.

    As for how to do it, RTFM. I'm sure parallels already has a write up on how to do it.
