I wanted to know if any of you guys are actively doing this? Dual booting with Bootcamp AND using Parallels and having it point to this partition. IMO: this is an AWESOME feature because you don't need to duplicate the space to have a native boot and a separate VM image. However, I am wondering about how Windows and Office detect and deal with the hardware changes when you boot differently. How do you avoid getting into the "hardware has changed, please reactivate spiral"? Thank you in advance for any help.
