    from Parallels back to Bootcamp (need help)
    Hi
    I have a MacBook Pro with Parallels XP installed. SO far it has al worked perfectly but today i bought Risen (RPG with high system requirements). I could install it but when i tried to launch it a message appeared that the graphic card was insufficient.
    After informing myself I know now that Parallels only emulates the gracard and not well enough.
    I think that i could play the game in Bootcamp?!


    My questions now: Will there be (how soon) an update/new version of Parallels that actually emulates the gracard well enough?
    Would i lose my data on Windows XP if I changed to Bootcamp? (How can I do that)
    Could I run Bootcamp and Parallels? (Bootcamp when playing, Parallels when using OS X and XP simultaneously?

    Thanks

    Parallels 5 was just recently released...if you like Parallels...that's the best your going to do for a while in terms of Parallels compatibility.
