    Why does Parallels 7 have an issue with allocating 8GB of RAM? I have 24GB of RAM in my Mac Pro, so there should be more than enough memory available for the VM and system processes. I see that Parallels 7 is 64-bit, so why the warning when I allocate 8GB of RAM to the VM?

    I also want to know the recommendation as well.

    My iMac has 16GB. If I don't put large amount into VM, OS X doesn't seem to utilized it all anyway.
