    I have OS X and XP running on separate partitions on a single physicle drive. I use Acronis OS selector to dual boot and what I was wondering was if I make my HD 1 single partition and use XP within parallels, would that slow down ProTools on the Mac side? Every once in a while ProTools will give me an error saying high CPU usage or something like that. If Parallels would make it worse, I'll just keep it as it is. Any help would be great.

    If you intend to run both Parallels and Protools at the same time you might find that performance does indeed go down. Especially if it already gives an error at present without using Parallels.

    Protools will require the use of the CPU and RAM, resources that Parallels will take away when running XP along side OS X
