Parallels Desktop for Mac update adds complete Vista SP1, XP SP3 support

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: PC / Laptop, Software

ParallelsFor those of you who religiously use for the WIndows virtualization needs in OS X, you should be aware that there was a new update released today that has the appearance of being fairly important. After all, it now completely supports Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista SP1, including full Boot Camp support in both. In addition, compatibility has been greatly improved, too. Of course, there are your other generic bug fixes and and performance enhancements as with any new release. Anyhow, definitely a recommended upgrade.

I don’t currently have the latest intel mac, so i am not using parallels, But an IT buddy of mine recently installed it on his home imac. He said it works great. He also dual boots to run windows natively. Best of both worlds.

My friend has parallel’s 3.0 and he tryed to install windows Vista 64-Bit but I think Parallel’s 3.0 only allows you install 32-bit versions of windows but I could be wrong. But it’s a nice program, what’s the difference between VMware and Parallel’s?

Now with support for Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Packs, Parallel is definitely worth using for those who like using both MAC and Windows.

Yeah those supports will be prooving good for them.Actually didn’t know about them earlier before reading this.Thanks Andru.

Why would mac people use it,i thought apple guys were harcore defenders of their systems,i bet they realised there are sometings that only a windows os can give you smile
