I have gone through the same transition and all I needed to do was sync my device with my Mac using the same account information that was on my Windows machine. I believe iTunes will use the latest sync information. ITunes seems to work by computer validation not OS validation. I have had a lot of problems using the latest version of Parallels, which was further exacerbated by the Parallels technical support people and I am not sure I would recommend using it. I finally had to bring my Mac into the Apple technical support people to straighten everything out that the Parallels software created and I am not re-installing Parallels although I have a license. The only thing you might have to do is transfer your directory with the your music etc from your Windows environment over to your to Mac. I forgot the name of that directory but it should be obvious if you inspect the contents. see less I do not believe you need this program for that purpose.

Answer:
YES if you pruchase more than one user license for each product. If you had a company would you want some one to purchase one item and steal it over and over again? You are not talking alot of money to do it right but to do it wrong could cost you Hundreds of thousand of dollars just in fines. Keep it legal.

No, you cannot legally install the Windows version that came with your Dell PC on your Parallels. Windows versions sold with a Dell are OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) versions that can only be used with the original Dell PC.

If you do it anyways, it will only work for 30 days and then stop working. You will not be able to talk with a Microsoft Associate about this. There is no such thing as deactivating a Windows version and transferring it to another computer. Each version is licenses for one computer only. You must buy a version for the second computer. That being said, you can purchase a System Builder version of Windows 7 or 8 for half the price. see less No, you cannot legally install the Windows version that came with your Dell PC on your Parallels.
