    Hi :)
    I have a macbook, and I've been trying for about an hour to (unsuccessfully) install windows vista business! I am using parallels, and have gotten to the point where the first installation disk quits and the computer tries to restart.

    My computer goes to a black screen, and it says bootmgr is missing, then it says to hit control-alt-delete, now being on a mac laptop with no way of getting a full keyboard. I've tried all of the different key combinations I could think of :mad: (substituting different keys with the 'fn' key or the 'esc' key.)

    What's happening? And what should I do?

    I use VMWare, under the menu there is a choice to send Ctrl-Alt-Delete to the virtual machine. Not sure about parallels but it's probably there too.
