You can still do all of this if your Windows is installed in the BootCamp
partition. Both Parallels and Fusion will boot from a BootCamp partition.
One thing you gain with this approach is if there is an occasion that you
need full hardware support for a Windows app, you can boot Windows
natively. The speed of running natively is a pretty dramatic difference.
Also, you won't have to keep converting your hd file between Parallels and
Fusion. They will both comfortably use the same BootCamp partition (not at
the same time of course).
