    i wanted to play windows games on mac

    i installed parallel 8 and installed a fresh copy of windows ultimate 64bit, i went to intel's website to install the right specification drivers for HD4000 i was left with this error msg "system did not meet the minimal specifications" im pretty sure i have all the requirements for it

    what should i do now?

    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.
