Parallels has released a new version of their Mac virtualization software. Overall I’ve een pretty happy with my MacBook, but there have been a few ups and downs. In any case I’ve been running Vista under bootcamp the last few weeks and was hoping to take advantage of the new feature that lets me run the same OS install inside the MacOS in a VM.
The sad news is that appears to not be supported. Parallels won’t let me select the Boot Camp option unless I’ve selected WinXP as my OS, and I’ve seen several forum posts about it corrupting your OS. I can’t afford the time to fix it all so I’m not going to take the chance at this time. If someone else has gotten this to work, please let me know.
