    Anyone done this? Know how to? I just want quicker access to windows without having to restart. I'd also like to conserve space and eliminate the need for a new windows install.

    1) If you're not planning on rebooting EVER, then don't bother with Boot Camp and use Parallels straight off.

    2) To do it, install Boot Camp etc. first and then there should be an option to use your Boot Camp partition when you load up Parallels.

    K, I didn't see this option. I already have a boot camp partition set up. Where is this option located?

    edit: found it. Had to go through custom when setting up.
