Best solution for running a virtual copy of Win7 on a MAC running OS X 10.8.3
Posted on 2013-05-14
I've got a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.8.3 and I've got a PC running a 64 bit version of Win7 Professional.
I want to create a virtual Win7 machine inside my MAC and run a copy of what I have running on my PC in that virtual space. After this, the physical PC will be wiped and sold. In the end, I will just have the MAC system running OS X with a virtual machine within it running my Win7 Professional.
I'm aware of Boot Camp, Parallels, and VMWare.
My problem is that the PC system I have came with a legal copy of Win7 but without an install DVD. The PC system is from an Israeli company and I've asked them for the install DVD but they haven't replied.
So I haven't a new, legal copy of Win7 to install onto the MAC OS X system.
So, I'm looking for a way to do what I want without an install-able copy of Win7.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
