Hello,
I currently have Parallels installed with XP sp2 on a 2.4ghz 4mb imac. How could I go about switching to using Bootcamp to run XP? Will I get the resources back..memory etc? I want to be able to run flight sim X and I understand it will not run on parallels. Thanks
QUOTE Thanks

Bootcamp needs it's own actual partition so you will need to get the virtual machine over to the Bootcamp install. You might need to do a fresh Bootcamp install of XP and then somehow transfer the settings/profiles over from the image. Maybe there is software out there that will do this?
