    I made a Windows Vista partition with Boot Camp to play games. But I also want to install Parallels for those quick things I do in Windows. So can I use Parallels with a Windows partition already made by Boot Camp?

    I don't know how to setup Parallels to recognize the BootCamp partition already there

    I would say no, as Parrallels creates a separate virtual machine in a file on the OS X file system.

    devnill, I would say you're wrong :p

    There are different options, and one is to use the Boot Camp drive for parallels.
