    So i ve got the parallel 5 on the new imac and loaded windows 7 from bootcamp, however the start time of windows 7 is extremely slow -- takes up to 5 minutes.... and the speed of launching application is not fast as well... sometimes even jammed the imac,

    ive then given them 4 cores with 4gb of ram (out of 8) and still nothing changes...

    anyone know how to fix this? thx!

    Lower it to 1 Core with 2GB ram and try that. Giving more resources doesn't exactly mean it'll be faster, especially in virtualization.
