    So I'm trying to install XP on Parallels Build 1848. Everything goes good until I get to the part where I have to press F8 to agree to the EULA...I click on the parallels screen and I click F8, but what comes up is that my keyboard brightness is set to 0 (i'm on a MBP).

    when i am clicked into parallels, this still happens!

    any help?

    I get to this screen also.

    Then I hit fn+F8, but then it restarts it and i just keep going in circles.
