Virtual machine

I have a new 27" Imac. I have the parrells program installed. Im running windows 7 through parrells. Parrellels still treats windows 7 as a virtual machine. I having major issues trying to flash custom roms through this set up. My girlfriend just lent out the laptop we had that was running winxp so now im screwed. Is there a workaround to flash this through parrelles on windows 7 virtual machine....

Re: Virtual machine

Why are you no not using bootcamp? From what I know about macs is that bootcamp is what you are looking for not parrells

Re: Virtual machine

nope... i use windows sparingly and im not in the mood to completly shut down my mac to log into windows. parrellels does exactly that. runs windows parrellel to mac os at the same time. Theres even a slider you can adjust how much resources you wanna dedicate to the windows side of things when its running.

Why not flash from the Storage Card?

This means that you *ARE* running a virtual machine with windows as a client OS. You might try virtual box from sun or even vmware to get better options for interfacing with your phone. By far the safest way is a native windows box or a windows partition on your mac.

Re: Virtual machine

Thanks guys for all your help!! i did a lot of research before i purchased this and found that parallels was the better of the two (vs vmware) I really didn't weigh in that i would be flashing a phone. Its not really a priority. but i have figured it out. Appreciate all your help.
