    Hey Everyone,

    I haven't bought Parallels yet, but I have a question.

    I would like to install Windows on a separate drive through Bootcamp. Not quite sure how I'm going to do that yet, but I really want to be able to use Windows to play PC games on the Mac. I can't play games via Parallels - no hardware 3d support via virtual machines.

    So, if I wanted to play games, I would be booting into that secondary drive through Bootcamp.

    But say I want to only use a program that doesn't require hardware 3d acceleration in Windows - like if I'm testing web sites for compatibility, whatever. Can I utilize Parallels to access that copy of windows without having to re-boot the system? Or am I simply crazy for thinking I can do ANY of this? :cool:

    Any input would be appreciated. I've been surfing these boards, and the technical proficiency of everyone here is stunning! Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!

    You can do this with the latest beta 3150. I have just done this on my Mac Pro. It appears to be working just great for me.
