Would like to know before I purchase

Before I spend money on Virtual software - I would like to know if what I would like to accomplish will work. I have a 2.8 iMac Intel Core 2 Duo - running OS X 10.5.2. My color laser printer (used for many years with a PC - but still has a lot of good life in it) is a Konica Minolta MC2300DL. I have searched for drivers to have this printer work with the iMac to no avail. I am thinking of adding VMware and Windows XP to the iMac - to gain the use of the printer and a few Windows based programs that I might like having on the Mac. If I don't gain the use of the printer using virtual software - I really don't see the use of paying for VMware and XP - it would be easier to buy a decent quality inexpensive printer for the iMac.

If anyone has experienced virtual software and driver success such as this - would you share your experiences?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I asked Primera if one of their Windows printers would work under boot camp and they said no.


Best Wishes,



Mitch

Thanks - it doesn't look to hopeful. I thought this thread was going to go into oblivion before I got a response.

Hi,

Boot camp would be more likely to work than VMWare or Parallels.


Best Wishes,
