    Hi all!

    Old: mbp 2007, SL, Bootcamp XP sp3
    New: mac mini server mid 2010, Lion (Drive 1)

    I'd like to set up drive 2 of the mini with mbp contents. I have both SL and SLS install dvds (with cats).

    Additionally, I bought Parallels Desktop 8, and would like to run that on drive 2 as well as bootcamp.

    Any suggestions? (Target mode didn't work, and no wireless network and only 1 ethernet connection. Both machines have firewire 800 ports, and I have an external DVD drive...)

    Thanks for any help, ideas, etc!

    Does anyone have any advice to get me started at least? I've searched all over the net, google, etc, but have been unsuccessful. If I could at least get SL on drive 2 of the mini I could probably figure it out from there...

    Thanks for any help!

    Why you wanna run dual versions of OSX on the mini? Just copy the MBP files to the mini drive and use them directly on there...
