How do you fix a Windows XP VHD within a Parallels environment?


Critical data can be extracted with the help of a tech by removing the Hard Drive and transferring it to a CD or DVD. Not being able to boot up can be the result of any number of possible problems, but you CAN get your data. Hope this is not too discouraging for you?

Why Should you get Parallel Desktop for Mac



A lot of PC users are watching closely on the growth of popularity on Apple products. Parallels Desktop for Mac provides an awesome alternative - running Windows directly from within Mac OS X.

The developers have tried to create as seamless an experience as possible, incorporating features like Coherence, which let you open a Windows application from the Mac OS X Dock, and SmartSelect, which lets you open Mac documents with Windows applications (and vice versa).

The benefit of this is it is now possible to run various program like Windows XP or Vista on an Apple Mac computer.

With the Parallel Desktop for MAC, it now enables Apple MAC user to use Windows, Linux, and more side by side with MAC OS or any Intel Powered MAC without rebooting.

There’s a lot of benefits Parallel Desktop has to offer and these includes opening windows file with MAC Application and Mac files with Windows Application using parallel SmartSelect. Share files and folders between Windows and MAC.

It’s now possible to browse windows folder and access files without launching windows with Parallel Explorer. Even running selected PC games on Mac with supports to 3D graphics.

These key features give a lot more convenience to Apple Mac users. Imagine running windows like a native Mac application without rebooting.

Parallel not only gives you free-floating Windows apps in its Coherence mode, but it also drops the Windows Taskbar atop the dock (or you can move it to the top of the screen, under the Finder menu bar).

The Parallel includes a set of utilities that lets you do all kinds of interesting things. There's a migration tool (Parallels Transporter); a program that lets you browse a virtual hard drive without actually launch Parallels (Parallels Explorer); a program for managing the size of virtual disks (Parallels Image Tool).

New to a recent upgrade is SmartSelect, which lets you associate file types with applications on the guest operating system.

For example, if someone sends you a Word document via Apple Mail, you can use SmartSelect to designate the Windows version of Word to open the file when you double-click it.

You can also reverse this, so double-clicking files in Windows causes them to be opened in Mac applications. Even for PC gamer, this has been a big breakthrough because for gamers, the biggest advantage Parallels Desktop 3.0 offers is the ability to run games.
Almost all games in the PC space require 3D graphics acceleration, even the casual ones, and up to now, Parallels has not had any 3D graphics acceleration at all.

I ve a mac, how can I use Bernina software



Select and install virtualization software for your MacBook Pro. You can choose from several popular virtualization packages for the Mac, including Parallels Desktop for Mac, VirtualBox and VMware Fusion. VirtualBox is a free, open source software package, while Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion are commercial software products

Install Windows within your virtualization software. You much purchase a copy of the Windows operating system if you do not already own it; it does not come with the virtualization software. Most virtualization software includes a wizard, or assistant, to guide you through the Windows installation. Windows will now run in a "virtual machine" on your MacBook Pro.

Install your Bernina Artista Embroidery Software on your virtual Windows system. You install software into the Windows virtual machine the same way you do on a physical PC.

Plug the Bernina security dongle into a USB port on your MacBook Pro. The Windows virtual machine acknowledges the dongle, and may ask you if the USB dongle is to be used with the Mac or Windows system. The dongle is a hardware device that provides copy protection for the Bernina embroidery software.

Run the Bernina Artista Embroidery Software by choosing it from the Windows Start menu

I need to know how to install Windows XP on Mac. Thank you!


The easiest, and my personal favorite, is to use Parallels Desktop for Mac:
http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/

If you're not into desktop virtualization (running an OS inside of another OS at the same time), you can do something called dual boot, in which you'll have the option after you turn the computer on to use either Windows XP or Mac. You'll have to reboot everytime you want to switch, though.

Remember to keep a current backup of your data before attempting a Windows XP installation.
