    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    Personally use Bootcamp. Just go to Utilities > BootCamp Assistant, open and print guidelines. If you follow the guidelines simple operation. You have supplied everything but the computer details as 2.66GHz CPU come in iMac, Mac Pro etc. If your computer is 64bit, then install that and maybe increase your current memory.

    Can't help with Parallel sorry.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    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!
