Parallels using BootCamp partition (too slwo)

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



To save disk space on my MPB I have deleted my Parallels Windows virtual machine,

and use my BootCamp Windows via Parallels as virtual machine in OSX.


What are your experiences with Parallels opening a BootCamp partition.


For me it seems to be twice as slow as a "real" VM machine. Also it has some restrictions, like making SnapShots, etc.


Please post some of your experiences.


I think of installing a small XP VM partition again, just with Windows and Office (as I need some language proofing tools, that are not provided in OSX).
