Windows 7: Parallels on a Mac with Windows 7 (buy or use what I got)

Parallels on a Mac with Windows 7 (buy or use what I got)

Was thinking about getting a Mac at some point in the future.
If I install Parallels (Virtualization and Automation Solutions for Desktops, Servers, Hosting, SaaS - Parallels), can I install a copy of Windows I have now or will I need to buy a new disk?

Havoc, you will have to purchase a new copy of windows for the PC part of your mac. Licensing will not allow you to install a previously installed copy of windows on your MAC. Unless it is the full retail version and has been removed from the existing installation.
