When Murphy Decides You Need to Use Windows

Just last week, I was taking with someone about Parallels Desktop. Cavalierly, I stated how I grabbed a trial key – but then realized I had no need to use for Windows.

Then just days later, I needed to see what a process looked like on Windows. Funny, Murphy, real funny.

Option 1. The Mac mini home server does have a Windows partition on it, but no monitor. So I’d have to disconnect it form the rats nest of external hard drives and other peripherals, plug it into the living room TV and reboot.

Option 2. Install VirtualPC on the eMac with the dead keyboard (no ability to open the DVD drive). Share the install disc across the network and run the install via VNC.
