Parallels provides its own drivers. You use those instead of the drivers for the computer's actual hardware.

Then use Boot Camp to install Windows, not Parallels. Not only are drivers an issue, but the fact that you're running in a virtual machine severely compromises performance.

Read that more carefully. The action menu is for Parallels version 2 and 3.
