Hi all, I'm new to the forum and have a question I would like to ask regarding an issue I encountered whilst starting Skyrim. I have a 2011 15' macbook pro. I made a windows partition and installed windows 7. I also installed parallels desktop. The problem: Upon starting Skyrim in the windows 7 partition I get a fatal error message: Failed to initialize renderer. I do not encounter this problem when starting skyrim using parallels desktop. (Skyrim through PD is EXTREMEMLY SLOW). So I wanted to ask for help regarding the error message because I think (I HOPE) that Skyrim will perform better if I boot my mac into windows 7 instead of using it on the desktop. If it doesn't perform better, than I will sell this piece of shit and get a pc. I think I should mention that I installed Skyrim onto an external harddrive. Will this affect gameplay in any way? I appreciate any help, Euan.
