    Just looking for some advice on what I maybe doing wrong here. I downloaded the trail of Parallels 6 and put the Win7 disk in the drive, then this happens. I get a blank list vs showing what is available to install.

    The Win 7 is a OEM Ultimate our IT guy at work hooked me up with. He has zero clue about Mac's so he's not much help tonight haha, but thought I would see if anyone knows what the issue is.

    Here is a picture of the screen I'm stuck on.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Thank you! I was searching around MR, should have been searching the Parallels forums. Much appreciated, that was exactly my issue and that thread seemed so far to solve my issue. Installing Win 7 as we speak.

    Thanks again!

    You could always try to download one of the official ISOs an install that in Parallels without a product key for up to 30 days (extendable to 120). Just to make sure it runs the way you want it to...

    I've posted the links before. Search the forum.
