    Hi guys,
    Has anyone sucesfully installed Windows Home Server throught Paralles Desktop 4.o Mac?

    Since Home Server is based on Win 2003 but it comes quite cheaper I'm thinking to buy it but before I would like to be sure that it runs on Paralles.

    Thanks


    Sig

    I see no reason why it would not. Just make sure you install the parallels tools (drivers) once the OS is installed. Virtualizing can handle close to any operating system, I believe it can even do Windows 3.1? I have not personally done this myself, but if it's based off of Server 2003, which is XP backbones, then it will run flawlessly.

    I'm wondering because I can't find it among the supported OSs (3.1 is included on that list).

    Thanks by the way.
