    I am happily using Parallels to run my Bootcamp drive in a virtual machine, but I have to enter my password on startup each time. I'm guessing that is because the drive is mounted and is unmounted for use.

    Is there a way I can stop OS X mounting the drive on startup? Will that actually stop the password dialogue showing each time I start my virtual machine?

    Or even better, Parallels could provide the option to add the login information to the keychain. The keychain is secure and should be able to prevent any other application aside from Parallels from gaining access to the login information.

    And to answer your question, unmounting the Boot Camp partition won't allow you to use it in Parallels without an administrator login.
