Re: Decompression / Page File on Parallels - 12-30-2008, 07:56 AM
to save space i would see if it works in Crossover for Mac. www.codeweavers.com ... If what you need doesn't work there I would recommend VMWare Fusion because Parallels assumes you have a Core Duo or Core2Duo which both have VT-X while the Atom lacks some of those features. VMWare doesn't need them.

The only way your XP drive is compressed is if you restored XP from the Dell system restore CD, or you manually turned on drive compression.
The page file trick may help though. As will formatting the virtual drive fat32 rather than NTFS..
I still prefer Parallels over VMWare.. But Parallel's version 4 will not work at all on our machines, has to be version 3. Thanks to the lack of VT-x..
As for Crossover.. There's also the free and open source "Wine".. I use that to run mIRC.. heh
