Windows – Using existing Boot Camp partition with Parallels

boot-campmacparallelswindows 7

I am thinking of buying the latest version of Parallels, version 6, to run on my shiny new iMac. I already have my drive partitioned to use Boot Camp with Windows 7 and everything runs smoothly, but I like the idea of being able to load up Windows to do quick testing of things (i.e. test something on IE8, or a quick compile in Visual Studio) without having to reboot my whole computer and interrupt my workflow.

Are there any gotchas or known problems with installing & using Parallels with an existing Boot Camp partition?

There don't seem to be. All you have to do is to set your boot camp partition as a bootable partition in Parallels.
