I think the question explains itself. I tried installing maya and I can't find the licensing program that I need to register it. And Maya keeps whining about the inability to launch the product configuration wizard. SO...
I may as well use it in windows since I have a working copy for that. However, I know bootcamp yields the best result but I want/need to be in osx also instead of isolating myself totally when I use Maya so between parallels and vmware, which would run Maya better? You can throw out a guess, doesn't have to be based on factual real life tests.
TLDR version: Which runs Maya better? VMware or Parallels?
if you can run VMWare or Parallels off of a bootcamp drive, however I CAN'T afford to buy that. So instead I got Virtual Box. Now virtual Box wasn't in the stickies so I think this should be ok to discuss, if not please feel free to delete it Mods. Anyway, I can't figure out how to get the Virtual Box to load from my Bootcamp drive. Anyone else use this and know what to do? I dont want to have to delete that partition or create a new one just to use VB. I don't have a large enough Hard Drive.
I have boot camp installed on my Mac, and it runs good enough for me. However, I hate having to restart my comp to just use word or something easy like that. So can I run VMWares, or Parallels on a pre made bootcamp drive? Like it will already have my Vista loaded, my word, my installs and updates and Virsu protection? If so that would be a great help to me. And If I do, how much RAM should I dedicate to it?
I ended up installing Windows XP twice, once for Parallels, and once for Boot Camp. When I open Parallels now, there are two choices, "Microsoft Windows XP" and "My Boot Camp". When I use "My Boot Camp", it seems just like how it would if I would use Boot Camp normally (ie. having the same files like booting up from Boot Camp). When I use "Microsoft Windows XP", it looks like a fresh install with nothing there.
My question is was I supposed to install Windows XP twice? How do I delete the "Microsoft Windows XP" in Parallels? Will everything I do in Boot Camp be affect like in the "My Boot Camp" in Parallels and vice versa?
i've installed kubuntu and when i click install parallels tools from the menu, the cd rom drive gets mounted but i cannot double click on the installer. i googled and i saw that i should go in terminal and type cd/media/cdrom. that didnt work as it said cannot locate folder or directory?
It's about Using Boot Camp Better With Parallels Desktopģ 5 for Mac.
We know the run Window on Mac with Boot Camp and with Parallels Desktop has different advatages and disadvantages. For example, with Boot Camp method, can run high-performance PC-only software at full speed on my new iMac but unable to run both OSes at the same time. With Paralells Desktop, can run high-performance PC-only software at almost native speed in VM but can run both OSes without rebooting
However this advertisement is telling me that we can run high-performance PC-only software at full speed in a Macís native hardware environment without rebooting. I have been using Paralells Desktop 5 to run Windows 7 visually on my new iMac, but my PC-only software will never run at full speed in a Macís native hardware environment. I checked the perfomance on visual mode and found that Parallels Desktop allowed my iMac to use at most 1 Core or Processor (I have 2 cores) and 2GB of Ram (I have 4 GB). So it's not running at full capabilities of my Mac's hardware at all.
I want to buy a macbookpro laptop. Because I have to work with windows as well I am trying to get a sense of the processor speed running on Mac under parallels or vmware, especially on the 2.8Ghz or 3.06Ghz (but not only) processors.
Can you run super_pi (you can find it from one of the links at the bottom on this page: [url] in the windows virtual machine (parallels or vmware) with 2M digits and then post the following information: - processor speed - software used (parallels or vmware) - windows os host (XP or Vista or W7) - super_pi result (2M digits),
I have a 13" macbook pro 4gb of ram, 2.26Ghz. So im trying to upgrade my MCSA/MCSE to 2008, so i would need to run few VM's, at least 3 2008, and few clients.. You guys think ill be fine using my laptop or i should buy a desktop with around 8gb of ram?
I'm having an issue with VMware and Windows 7 64-bit. I was running VMware with Windows XP 32-bit, but having since installed Windows 7 64-bit. I am not able to get VMware to work with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. I believe this is because when I installed VMware I selected the 32-bit OS option because this was what I had when I was running Windows XP via boot camp. Is there anyway to get VMware to work with Windows 7 64-bit without reinstalling VMware. It's starting to get a little annoying booting into 7 with Boot Camp.
after restoring my bootcamp partition from my back up, I can not figure out how to get it to work with VMware. VMware has the special boot camp spot but it won't start up my bootcamp. I have had this problem before and my solution was to completely uninstall VMware and then do the set up it gives you(I don't feel like doing that). So I need to re-add my bootcamp partition some how. Anyone know how to do that with out having to re-install VMware?
After getting my macbook pro in just, latest 13" model with SD card slot, I've been meaning to upgrade the RAM and hard drive in it, as I wasn't willing to pay Apple for the privilage. I've seen a few things like non apple HDDs not being recognised or being slow. I'm just wondering if this is still the case? If I buy a bigger HDD will it work?
Also, does anyone have a pdf manual for VmWare Fusion. I bought it off their site, but for the life of me I can't find a manual, only a starters guide.
I upgraded to Windows 7 today on my Fusion Virtual Machine on my Macbook today. I preceded it with a Time Machine backup, and it copied a few gigabytes, which I expected since I installed CS4 the other day.
Two hours later... I installed the Windows 7 upgrade, and then did another Time Machine backup. This time it copied 36 gigabytes (the amount of my virtual machine file).
This got me thinking... Does Time Machine backup the entire virtual machine file each time there is a slight change? If so, then merely launching Windows in Fusion would be enough for Time Machine to backup the virtual machine file, using almost 40 gig on my backup drive most every time I launch time machine backup, even though the change is minor (a few bytes)
The consequence is that for a Fusion user, the backup device is going to fill awfully fast because of the relatively minor changes to the VM file, thus making for paltry space for history on all the Mac files.
I figure that a 320 Gig backup device is effectively extremely tiny for a 250 Gig HDD with only 90 Gig of files. My backup drive is already full after only ~8 backup sessions, hence deleting old history, which is hardly a few months old!
I use my boot camp partition in Vmware. How do I make a bootable copy of that? I want to know because in Boot camp I'm gonna install Windows 7, but I might still need XP so I was thinking about using Vmware for that.
When I start up VMware fusion and win7 it pretty much makes my computer un-usable while it loads,(programs become un responsive) witch takes about 10 min. Then after it finally gets into windows it take another 10 min to finish loading, but programs become usable with some lag. The weird thing is, is that it's not even using half of my CPU or all of my RAM. After all that, and it finishes loading it is usable. Anyone else have this problem? I'm giving it 2gb of ram, and it's 64bit win 7 RC.
Normally when I shut power off my MacBook Pro, it takes about 4-5 seconds and then its off. Since I installed VMware Fusion yesterday, it takes about 1 minute to power off. What is going on? I read somewhere that when you quit a virtual machine you need to choose "kill all" to stop any background processes. How do I do this or is this just normal.
Is anyone else having stability issues with the Covet?
How would I go about measuring heat on the CPU and GPU? I can't seem to find any utilities.
NTune crashes Vista 64 so that's out...
What I'm getting is normal fast operation for maybe an hour, and then fairly reliably the screens will all blank out for a second and then come back. Windows delivers a popup saying the NVidia drivers have stopped responding and then recovered.
Event logs show the message also: Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding.
I got the Quad Core Covet, and the Quadro 3700. I have it set in the High Performance power mode, plugged in to the wall on the (extremely large) factory charger. The system will run all day if I'm not using Maya.
Also ever since receiving this I have been getting a security audit failure:
Code: Code integrity determined that the image hash of a file is not valid. The file could be corrupt due to unauthorized modification or the invalid hash could indicate a potential disk device error.
File Name:DeviceHarddiskVolume3WindowsSystem32drivers cpip.sys Network works fine so I don't know what to think of that. Anyone have this too in Vista 64 Business or Ultimate?
I got the blue of death in VMware fusion with windows vista ultimate,I think "Defender" did it, every time I go to the vmware to start windows the blue screen shows up, anyway around this ? I can't do any safe modes or last good configs.
Just curious, would the V13 with lowest processor be able to run a XP VM (w/ VMware) fine? Does anyone do this? I am a bit worried with 1.3GHz and 2gb RAM, but the under $450 price tag is making me hope it would work... Do you think that the dual core would help this at all? I mean, I would still have the 2gb RAM limitation even with that.
Otherwise, what would you suggest? I would like to keep my purchase under $500 and 13in class business laptops preferred. I don't mind buying from Outlet (I prefer it). I was thinking (hoping) that worst case scenario I haggle Dell on the 3300 or a new v13, or vostro 1320, but I HIGHLY doubt I can get them down that much.
the thing is during course work teacher told us to download vmware once i tried to run it i got the BSoD. the code was Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x8d885000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000,0x8edb9cf1) i didnt know acer doesnt provide recovery discs so i dint make one..
I'm looking to purchase a powerful notebook for my development needs. I use MS Visual Studio 2008 (in a VMware virtual machine), currently running on my DELL Precision T7400 desktop workstation (Dual Intel Xeon X5482, 3.20GHz / 32GB RAM / 4 x 300GB SAS HD with 15,000rpm). This thing is a pleasure to work with, everything just flies, even when multiple virtual machines are running at same time.
In next months I need to spend some time developing and testing at my customer's site. Now I need something comparable to my T7400 in means of performance, but portable. My first idea was, of course, a M6500. It seems to be a very powerful beast. However, until now I have no experience with such "mobile workstations". Can this thing really deliver what it promises?
