I use Windows for a stock trading program as Schwab doesn't make a Mac version for one of their trading platforms.

I have found on previous attempts that restarting the iMac to get to Windows is time consuming. With Parallels I can have an open window into Windows 7.

Still, I am confused. If I load Windows so that I use BootCamp to use Windows, and then add Parallels, will Parallels find and let me get into that Windows 7, or does Parallels make me load Windows a 2d time, in other words does Parallels find Windows 7 is already on the iMac? Again, I am confused about whether to add Windows 7 before Parallels or not.
