Hello, I running XP & Win 7 in virtual but never run them at the same time with OSX 10.8.2. Thinking about getting Win 8 and installing it as a stand alone VM and it will not be running with other VM's open. I have plenty of HP space and have 12GB of memory. I was wondering what would be the optimal settings when installing Win8. How much HD space to allow and how much memory. I have a late 2009 iMac i5 intel processor. Since I have Win7Pro I'm thinking about getting a stand alone OEM version of Win8 as opposed to an upgrade.
Thanks for any suggestions.
ps: I run windows mainly for the use of Quicken for Windows and to play around and keep up and current with the OS.
As per the requirements of windows 8, I would suggest the following settings for win 8 vm
CPU 1 or 2
RAM 2 or 4
Hard disc space 30 - 60 GB
