Parallels and other emulation software vs bootcamp


#1

Further to my question about testing ProRender using nvidia cards and Windows on my mac, I’ve been trying for two days to install Windows using Bootcamp. I did this on a MacBook Pro a few years back and it was easy. Now I’m trying on a Mac Pro Cheesegrater and it’s extremely difficult and frustrating.

I was wondering whether Parallels, VM Ware Fusion or Virtual Box might work? Which of those would be best?

Obviously I want something that will allow c4d to use the nvidia cards fully to run ProRender without penalty.

i haven’t looked at virtualization software in several years, but at that time they all seemed to cripple your system. I think they’re mostly made for running less computationally intensive programs.

And yeah, the last time I tried setting up bootcamp it was a mess. I finally got it running (can’t remember how) but I’m crossing my fingers that it stays up & I don’t have to try fixing it again.
