I use Parallels 8 to run Windows 7 in my MacBook with Mountain Lion. But I'd like to have Windows running natively in my Mac. I don't want to start again with a clean Windows installation, and configure all the software I need from scratch. So, I had this crazy idea...

Is there any way I can transform my Parallels Virtual Disk containing Windows 7 in a native partition bootable via Bootcamp? I assume it's just too complicated, or even impossible. But need to be sure.

Many thanks in advance

  • I found an old thread on the Parallels support forums which has instructions to do that, but it doesn't look easy. People have asked if it's still relevant today but there hasn't been an answer. – Olly Hodgson Jan 29 '14 at 16:17
  • Thanks for the link. I finally created a new fresh partition and install Windows 7 from scratch. Not as long as I thought. But I keep the link, for future references. – Jorge Arévalo Feb 4 '14 at 11:23
