    i was just wandering if you run bootcamp in parallels desktop, do you still have to allocate ram to the vm. cause i know if you do it natively you don't have to.

    yep you do.

    in my installation when running native I (Of course) have all cores all ram, in the Parallels it have only 4 cores and 8 GB ram.

    That's because all RAM is available to Boot Camp. You have to allocate RAM for VM's. They don't get RAM out of thin air.
