I do not post on these boards often, primarily because people try to make you feel dumb for asking what they consider to be a "stupid question". Well I'm telling you off-top, I have a stupid question. I just purchased Parallels 8 for my Macbook Pro, running (Lion 10.8.2, with a Core i5 processor. Midsummer 2012.) ok, first off, my bad... I didn't know you had to purchase windows installation disk separate from Parallels. They either didn't make that explicit or I wasn't paying attention. Either way. Here's my question. And I've searched all over the-google for a straight forward answer to no avail. So I'm at your mercy snarky Mac-Rumor people. Is there a way to download The FULL version of Windows, (not the upgrade), the System Builder, Boot Up, Full version of Windows online? OR do I have to carry my lazy self to the store? Secondly, is the Full Version required to run Parallels on my mac, or could I just use the upgrade version to run with Parallels. Ok, there you have it. My dumb question. It's all yours. Be nice.
