I am running VM, PD in particular, on my MBP.

I have encountered several scary things today: machine noise (sounds like "Kah-Kah") occurs while I am in 64-bit Windows 7 in VM.

Will the PD actually harm the hardware of my MBP? The sound is really scary!

  • How old is your MBP ? If you have a HardDrive does the sound comes from it ? (AFAIK, PD should not "able" to hard a computer.) – Matthieu Riegler Jan 6 '14 at 20:02
  • @MatthieuRiegler it is the newest. So I guess it is already SSD. Yeah, exactly! The sound is just like from a hard disk! – Sibbs Gambling Jan 6 '14 at 20:39
  • I wonder if there are recorded sounds in Parallels similar to how electric vehicles are now getting recorded engine noises to alert sentient beings that they are in motion. – bmike Jan 6 '14 at 21:47
  • @FarticlePilter you have a Retina MacBook Pro ? If so please edit your post. – Matthieu Riegler Jan 7 '14 at 11:10
