I've got windows 7 64 bit bootcamped and was wanting to be able to run windows apps, so i set it up on fusion. it is, however, almost unbearably slow. I understand there is a performance hit running 64 bit OS inside fusion, and another hit from running fusion with bootcamp instead of an actual virtual machine, but i can't imagine it should be that much. I have noticed that whatever amount of RAM I set the partition to use, it fully commits all of that RAM to Fusion and doesn't let it go until I suspend the vm, no matter how many apps I have running. Is that normal? It makes it so that if I give windows, say, 2 gigs, it consistently uses all of it no matter what i have running and leaving only 2 gigs for my mac side of things... very impractical and basically nerfs both OS's functionality. It also takes about 10 minutes to boot. I have to hope this is not as good as I can get with a late 2008 mbp. Are there are any settings I should make sure to check? (i basically only want the virtual machine for downloading steam games right now lol but it's horrendously slow even at that) Does anyone know if parallels wil run better inside Snow Leopard w/ windows 7? Or would I really be much better off just going back to 32 bit windows xp as my boot camp drive.
