Hello all. New here and I was reading a thread that was complaining about how people don't look things up first. So I popped my question into google and got this. I thought it might help someone else.

I still have a few questions but I think I am going to research first.

Have a great day.

The instructions appear to be right. I just followed the quick start guide included with Parallels and all was smooth. I would recommend at least a gig of Ram. I first installed with only 512MB and it still ran fine though. Also, be sure to install the Parallels tools after you successfully install windows. It makes a HUGE difference in the functionality of windows.
