    How to share parallels and boot camp file

    I have recently bought my first macbook and now thinking to get a iMac 27" Quad Core i7. I am doing college so I am thinking that I would buy parallels desktop 5 in-case I would require to work a windows program which is intended for a class. I was thinking if there was a method to set up together boot camp and a Virtual Machine using the similar separation. In different words I desire to be capable to access my folders I have constructed in my Virtual Machine in boot camp and vice verse. Any help would greatly appreciated.

    Boot Camp is not required. If you don't recognize why you would desire to utilize Boot Camp, then pay no attention to it. Utilize Boot Camp if you desire to boot your Mac straightly into Windows. This would be utilized for improved compatibility with machine and improved processing and graphics presentation since it won't be allotting assets with Mac OS X. later than you set up Windows to a Boot Camp separation you can utilize the separation with Parallels and still utilize it to boot your Mac. One drawback is that you can't utilize snapshots through a Boot Camp partition.

    • It also provides you the capability to boot into Windows on your Mac.

    As far as I know bootcamp needs windows a true copy of windows XP service pack 2 which is needed to installed in a dual boot setup. Bootcamp only sustain in Microsoft windows. It runs all the application which is able to run on the windows XP can be run at resident speed. I think this may be helpful to you.
