good day everyone, first sorry if i post this on the wrong section. kindly move to appropriate thread if im posting this wrong. BOOTCAMP PARALLELS Question: 1. if i install windows 7 on bootcamp, can i move my application software installation destination to my optibay haddrive? does it affect when i run parallels booting from bootcamp? (if change destination folder to optibay hdd) or should i need to install this on the partitioned bootcamp harddrive and not on optibay HDD. thanks 2. is trim supported on bootcamp windows 7? do i need to download third part trim enabler? 3. how about using parallels. (if trim is enabled on bootcamp partition whether default or third party -because ill boot it from parallels) does trim on parallels activate on default when i use it. The Question below Has been answered: I have a windows xp (licensed) and windows 7 laptop on acer ferrari. my problem is i want to bootcamp windows xp but its not supported. i can run it on parallels (i bought the bundle with other softwares for 49.99). but i also want it to use its full hardware (bootcamp) in gaming. i know parallels can boot from bootcamp. so if i want to play games i like it to bootcamp and not parallels (correct me if im wrong). so i want it to exchange my OS. i have windows 7 home premium on my acer ferrari laptop. i want this to be windows xp. get the licensed from it (w7) to be placed on my bootcamp for gaming and run parallels from it when im on OSX. i know this is possible but i dont know where to start. how can i install xp on my acer laptop (via usb?) then how can i get the software for its hardware. like bluetooth etc. is there a software that automatically detect a laptop components and download every hardware software it have? thanks in advance guys. i really need you help. UPDATE: If you have a Laptop/Desktop PC that came from an OEM manufacturer like (Dell, HP, IBM, SONY, Lenovo, etc.) with an OEM license (Win 7, Vista, XP, etc) you cannot legally transfer the license. OEM licenses are tied to the original machine they are initially installed on. Plus the OEM's further lock down their version of the software so it will only install on a specific machine type they produced.
