    I'm very new to Mac. Until three days ago Parallels worked on my 10.4.11. Now when I try and start Parallels the screen slightly darkens and tells me to power off. What did I do and how do I fix it. Please help and thanks.

    Try to get solution of your problem from Parallels officials! They have nice supporting center and forum. Sure it will help you.
    I would be glad to give you an answer but I don't know it. I think you should provide us with more information to get the solution from here.

    multi boot with parallels

    I have a PM with 4 750Gb Harddrives:

    1. Leopard OS
    2. Clone of #1
    3. WinXP - 32 bit
    4. Vista x64

    I understand Parallels thus far does not work with 64 bit windows systems

    Boot Camp currnetly allows me to boot to either windows system

    O.K. -- If I install Parallels, will I still be able to run WinXP as a virtual machine? Will I be able to upgrade the XP virtual machine to Vista relatively painlessly? Without changing anything on the XP drive (#3)?

    I have no experience with Parallels. Is VMW Fusion a better choice for my specific situation? I would love to dispense with Windows entirely but have to use some critical apps for work that absolutely do not run under OSX.

    Thanks for any advice
