So I'm in a small mess of a situation..
I have a MacBook Pro, and recently purchased Parallels 8 since there are two programs at work that refuse to work for a Mac.
Problem is one program is only for WIndows XP, and the other is for Windows 7/8.
I'm pretty sure making multiple virtual machines for each operating system won't be a problem. I have a licensed XP Disc and that installed fine.
My primary questions is regarding Windows 7/8...
I don't have a Windows 7 CD to do an install, but have a desktop with Windows 7 installed on it. HOWEVER I don't have the license number for that copy of Windows.
Should/Can I simply migrate that computer over to the Mac? Or will it ask me for a license number? I also do not have any experience with the migration so I don't completely understand how that works, I am going to start reading around about that now, but wanted to begin the thread and see if I could save some time.
Thanks for all your help, as always.
