I've partitioned and installed Windows 7 into bootcamp. All has been running for several weeks and is fine.
Now i want to install Parallels but want to retain bootcamp for use. Basically, I have clients that will not allow MacOS to run on their network. So, I need to use Bootcamp with Windows 7 to work with these clients. Then when I am not at the client site, I want to run Parallels to use Mac and still get to data and programs on the Bootcamp partition.
I have read various documents from Parallels, but am still confused and need someone give thumbs up that it will not be an issue.
What I have read, is that you install & run on Windows 7 Parallels Transporter. Create a PVM file on a USB external drive. Then boot into Mac and create the virtual machine in Parallels.
However, this sounds like I migrate the Bootcamp partition to the virtual machine and have 2 separate installs of Windows 7.
Any assistance will be grateful.
