Default parallels 3.0 - 03-19-2010, 12:29 PM

How do you get Parallels to work??

First I tried 4.0 But it doesn't work on the Dell 10V Hackintosh. Then I read that 3.0 would work - so I tried to use my 3.0 version of Parallels, but got the message that i couldn't use this version of Parallels with this version of OS X... (Running 10.6.2)

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

I tried for a while to make it work and gave up.

Parallels V3.x does not support Snow Leopard
Parallels V5.x won't install on an atom based hackintosh. (maybe others, I don't know)

I was successful in getting VirtualBox installed (free) but the performance was awful. In the end, I decided to take the dual-boot solution for when I wanted to run Windows.

Yup, forget parallels; it doesn't work, or so it is said.

VirtualBox is awesome and easy; so is VMware. My favorite is VBox, but others may feel differently. They make running of Windows tolerable when needed, and there are no issues with formatting or the like.
