Run Snow Leopard In Parallels 8 In Mountain Lion, From A Snow Leopard Partition
iMac 27-inch, Late 2009
Quad-Core i7, 2.8GHz
OS X 10.8.2
Parallels 8 Desktop
All updates installed
I formatted the internal hard drive as a 970GB partition (Mountain Lion) and a 30GB partition (Snow Leopard). Like many people, I boot into the SL partition from time to time to run PPC applications. Then, I boot back into ML when I am done using the PPC application. This is cumbersome.
I use Parallels to run three Windows business applications that are not available on OS X.
Let's assume that the Apple Snow Leopard EULA is not a factor, and that I am running Snow Leopard Server on the 30GB partition. This is not the case, but let's assume so for this posting. Can I run SLS in Parallels from the 30GB SLS partition, the same way that many people run Windows in Parallels from Boot Camp? I have not located any information that addresses this configuration. Obviously, I could access my PPC applications real-time without rebooting into the SLS partition.
Thank you for your assistance.
