10/4/10 @ 10:41 am You don’t need to uninstall Parallels and is Windows 7 partition to use Boot camp. I have both going. If you want to remove a virtual machine, just look in the Parallels help under “Removing a Virtual Machine” and it lists a few options. You can also look in their help under “Removing Parallels Desktop” for uninstall instructions.
Important: This guide is focused on using Parallels Desktop with Windows XP or Windows 7. Using Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac you can run several other kinds of operating systems (p. 130) on your Mac, such as several flavors of Linux and Unix, Mac OS X Server, Windows 8, older versions of Windows, and more. The Mac or the PC―Parallels Desktop lets you use Windows side-by-side with Mac OS X on your Mac. Use this guide to quickly set up and start using Parallels Desktop.
However, if you simply remove the virtual machine and leave Parallels installed, you can then use Parallels to run your Boot camp partition when you want. So you can have one install of Windows and access it either by rebooting into it, or running Parallels inside of Mac OS. The best of both worlds. 3/5/12 @ 9:05 am I have a new iMac with Parallels and Windows 7 installed on it I have a large Kyocera printer and I needed Parallels so I could stay with the same features that I am used to. Everything seemed to be working fine until Windows 7 had some updates that came and now my printer doesn’t do all of the things that it used to to do (like making a booklet, folding and stapling) I want to uninstall Windows 7 and re-install again, hoping that this will correct the problem.
How do I do this? Should I also uninstall Parallels and how do I do this?
