WinXPsp2 in Parallels

09/19/06 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

In and amongst the normal work, Clarise and I installed Parallels on Vate, and then added the first Guest OS, WindowsXP with SP 2, well actually, Windows XP with SP1 and then many updates to get to the point where we could update it to SP2 - and the first program we installed was TrendMicro PC-cillin. :p And right now, and for the next few hours, my files are coming over from my lastest dead Dell with no more video to the new MacBookPro17. They'll reside in a Parallels Shared Folder, allowing access from either the MacOSX or WindowsXPsp2. The next Guest OS will be SLED10, but that's for another day.

Parallels is pretty amazing, though I must admit to some trepidation when the familiar Windows blue screen [of installation] appeared in a window in my Mac, and even downright fear when the installation process said it would be formatting the hard drive with NTFS. But all went amazingly well, and amazingly quickly.

Very cool.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
