I've been trying to find a way to run my Bootcamp installation of WinXP using Parallels. I would like to continue using Windows from booting up if I intend to use it for a longer period of time, but there are times when I'm working with OS X and I want to use Windows just for something quick. How can I use my existing Bootcamp installation through Parallels?

Open Parallels, click File => New.
* Select Custom
* Choose the correct OS type (XP)
* Set amount of RAM to use
* Select 'Use Boot Camp'
...the rest is self-explanatory.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
