    Hey guys,

    So I installed XP on Parallells recently, but I also want to set up Bootcamp. Is there a way i could use the same XP I installed on Parallels also for Bootcamp so I wont have to use up space installing XP again?

    Thanks

    Yes, but you'll have to reinstall. It must be installed in BootCamp first.

    There is a work-around to migrate your Parallels installation to a bootcamp partition but its painful and long process. Best to reinstall under bootcamp.
