    I get the dreaded blue screen of death when trying to install RC2 in parallels on my macbook, it gets to the end of the very first black vista screen with a progress bar, and then as soon as it tries to go to the first blue/green screen I get the dreaded blue screen. anyone have any ideas? ( I am running it on a macbook with 1GB with ram)

    might be off topic, but i once had the bsod in windows xp, when installing the macintosh drivers, the bsod says about KeyMagic.sys

    Is RC2 supported by parallels? RC1 was. Are you running the latest and greatest version (probably beta) or Parallels that is available?

    Dunno if it's supported, but I have RC2 running in my Parallels. (Build 1970 and later).

    Post your build # of Parallels.

    Are you doing this from a DVD or from the ISO? I did mine straight from the ISO I downloaded...
