when i started using parallels and bootcamp the following things happen when running under bootcamp, and this is with multiple installs, so reinstalling either parallels or windows doesn't help. problems with bootcamp when parallels is installed: 1. if i'm not a speed demon when starting windows, an error message pops up and i have to restart. This explained: it always asks what configuration i want to use, and if i dont move the highlighted option from parallels to microsoft windows xp professional edition saying i need to reinstall hal.dll. 2. i always have to reactivate due to "hardware changes". 3. the keys for dimming the screen, and volume keys stop working when running in boot camp on my macbook pro. problems in parallels: 1. i always have to reactivate windows. if anyone knows the resolution to any of these above problems i would be very happy, especially the reactivating windows part. This happens under parallels 3.0, and every other version of parallels i have had. This is all on the core 2 duo 2.33ghz macbook pro. thanks in advance.
