    So I have the original disk to install WinXP, and I used Fusion. After the ML install Fusion no longer works.

    So I need to upgrade to Fusion 4 or go with Parallels. I would really, really not like to go to a different Windows OS as I only need this for a few programs.

    So - does WinXP work under Mountain Lion with wither Fusion 5 or the latest Parallels?

    I'm using Windows XP under Parallels 7 on ML. Works fine except the preexisting bug with the Thunderbolt Display audio being distorted. The newer version of Parallels is coming out soon..not sure of what new features will be added though.
