Frequently Asked Questions
To add Windows or another operating system to your Mac, Parallels Desktop creates a “virtual machine,” or a virtual copy of a computer, inside your Mac. You can then install Windows in the virtual machine just as you would install an operating ststem on a regular computer.
A full list of system and hardware requirements can be found here.
If you have already installed Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, or Windows 7 on your Mac using Boot Camp, you can easily set Parallels Desktop to work with Boot Camp using either of these two options:
- Set Parallels Desktop to run Windows from the Boot Camp Partition
- Import Windows and your data from Boot Camp into Parallels Desktop
Parallels supports a wide array of operating systems, including macOS, OS X, Windows 10, 8.1, and 7, as well as Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. You can run just about anything on your Mac!
