I have two laptops here. One is a Dell 1210 Dual Core 2 with 2G ram and 2.66Ghz custom processor currently running XP home.

The other is a Mac Book Pro running dual core 2 at 2.16 Ghz and 2 G ram. Now I have figured out how to install the Windows XP Home on the Mac in a VM configuration under OS X using Parallels software. But how do I load my OS X software on the Dell? Any tips on procedure for this? I understand it is possible but would like to hear from someone who has been through it before.

Options I have considered for the Dell 1210-
1. Partition the drive and install OS X in the second partition. Must boot up and select the partition for the boot drive to do it this way.
2. Install a new drive and format it with OS X clean, install Parallels software as I did in the MacBook and then install windows XP.
