Everyone’s favorite virtualization tool, Parallels Desktop, has released an update that allows users to runs Windows Vista RC1 as a guest OS and eliminates the need to manually limit RAM via the command line.

We also released a new build for Desktop for Mac that eliminates kernel panics and substantially improves the performance of virtual machines running on Mac Pros and 64-bit iMacs. The build eliminates kernel panics and major bugs and adds support for Windows Vista RC1 as a guest OS. The new build is available at the main Desktop download page (http://www.parallels.com/en/download/desktop/update/).

In previous builds, Mac Pro and 64-bit iMac users who have machines with more than 2GB of RAM had to manually limit RAM via the command line in Terminal. In this build, we’ve included a tool that will help you take this action without any command line coding. With a single click you can limit your RAM and make your Mac Pro fully compatible with this build. You can easily revert your memory back at any time to the full configuration with the same tool. Its very important to note that limiting your RAM configuration to run Parallels Desktop will NOT prevent you from running any other OS X application (although they may run slightly slower). It simply helps our hypervisor “play nice” with the Mac Pro.
