Create Boot Camp HD from Parallels HD?

    Hi All.

    Now that Garmin GPS devices are working within Parallels (thank you Parallels team!!), I can get rid of my 10GB Boot Camp partition which was set-up solely to run my Garmin devices.

    However, there may be some times when I might want to boot into Boot Camp at start-up, so I'd like to have just one hard drive to use in BOTH Parallels and Boot Camp. Sounds simple, right? While I know that I can use my Boot Camp partition within Parallels, what I really want to do is use my Parallels partition within Boot Camp (because I don't want to go through the hassles of re-installing all of the programs that I've put into Parallels).

    So here's the question:

    Is there some way to take my Parallels HD and migrate it over to Boot Camp in its entirety? If so, then I could run that HD from within Parallels most of the time and still be able to use the same HD with the same programs and data when I want to boot into Boot Camp.

    Any ideas?
