3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

i have installed Macos on my Dell 8600 with dual boot to windows.

What i am trying to do is to run macos as my main os and have windows in a virtual machine.

now My Problem is i would like to use the Windows partition not a virtual partition.


Any Ideas

Can you not boot from the install disc? If you cant you can always search in the Genius Bar for the vmware to native which installs osx to a physical drive within vmware. Then install xp in parallels which is the best vmware type app for mac.

i currently have my laptop with windows and macos on dual boot

i can't run vmware in windows because of the centrino bug

(which i came across and is a cpu issue)

so i was trying to get my windows working in a mac virtual machine.

the problem with parallels is it does not support partitions only virtual partitions


Thanks anyway
