    So, I am loving my new MBP, didn't realize how great this. The wife and kids still have some needs for Windows based programs. I am not 100% sure of the order of doing this. Also, my windows disc is a 32 bit version. If someone wouldn't mind point ing me in the right direction. Thank you!
    PS: If windows is installed, can I install windows based programs? THANKS!

    With Windows media in hand, simply start Parallels and let it guide you through it.

    Does your mac have a CD Drive?

    Krazy,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the MBP has a CD drive.
    So, install parallels first, then it should guide me?
    Also, 32 bit version is ok?
    THANKS!!!

    It's the same as it has always been if you've used Windows in the past.

    If it suits your needs.

    Don't forget that there is a Windows, Linux & Others on the Mac subforum.
