The scenario I have in mind is:
- Install Windows 8 on a separate partition via Boot Camp.
- Create a virtual machine in Parallels based on the installation in step 1.
- Create a new virtual machine based on the one on the Windows partition, but existing independently.
Am I going to need to activate Windows three times? Or once for the Boot Camp installation, and once for the virtual machine in step 2, with the second virtual machine not re-triggering the need for activation? And does it matter whether I activate Windows in the VM first or on the Boot Camp installation?
At what step in the process do I install Parallels tools?
Thanks in advance!
