Windows 8.1 takes 20GB (16GB for x86), a database application like MSSQLS takes 1-5 GB depending on the features you install. A database with 10,000,000 entries is roughly 1-10 GB. 150 GB is a lot, IMHO, but it depends what else you want to do with it and how much memory you have available of course.

You can boot from a SD card — I've booted Windows 7 and Windows 8 from a SD card. You need to find a program that will mount the image file onto the SD card and make sure you format Properly you can find out more information by just going on Google.

Sorry about this but I've solved the issue. I went back to the external hard drive I had onto which Boot Camp had downloaded the Windows 7 drivers during the installation process. I had to manually activate the application found in Bootcamp/Drivers/Broadcom/BroadcomWirelessWin7x64. Hopefully this will be helpful to someone else.

Since you are working in a laptop environment where memory can sometimes be limited, I would highly suggest going the route of setting up Windows using Bootcamp. The setup process for this is fairly straightforward (it walks you through the whole thing). If you haven't already purchased Dragon; however, there is a Mac version available.

The Repair Disk button performs different actions depending on whether a whole disk or a volume is selected. If you still cannot start up in OS X, you can try to reinstall OS X by starting up from the recovery partition ...

Please check out TrackPad++. It's free with an option to donate. I've used this in the past, when I had bootcamp with Windows 7 - you can set gestures like you can in Mac OS X.

First of all, if you have a program that that's 32 bit it will run fine in 64bit with out compatibility mode. The only time you really need compatibility mode is when you have vista drivers and want to run them on win 7, you would use compatibility mode. This also doesn't apply to mac only windows computers they for some reason need the exact drivers. I also ...

I'd recommend using Winclone for this task. It's a paid app, but it's easy to use and will create a backup of your Windows partition in its current condition.

Yah disk utility is bound and determined to not let you (or itself) potentially erase any more data, especially if it sees the signature of another disk partitioning utility. Welcome to the Wonderful World of Macintosh Computing... sigh. Probably your best bet is to back up your Mac and Windows data (if not already) and boot the Mac from the COMMAND-R ...

Solved this by reinstalling Windows 8.1 on the Bootcamp partition and the re-added it to Parallels. The suggestions from @foregon and @Nash were helpful, but unfortunately had no effect on my system.

Winclone 4 does an excellent job of backing up and restoring BootCamp partitions. I have used it with Windows XP (unsupported) and 7. OSX 10.7+ $29.99 is the price and I think it is well worth it. http://twocanoes.com/winclone
