Is it possible to use the same Windows 7 installation for Boot Camp and also for Parallels? When I get my Mac, I know I'd be doing Boot Camp but it would be really nice to use Parallels too.
Is this possible or do you have to install Windows 7 twice in different ways?

Moved to correct forum.
Yes, it's possible. After installing Win 7 using the Boot Camp assistant, you can use that installation as a VM in either Parallels or Fusion. However, it will have to be activated twice. Once when installed using the Boot Camp assistant and again in Parallels or Fusion.
