    Ok so I installed xp via bootcamp installed all the drivers and activated windows. I restarted back into mac and opened parallels and told it to use my bootcamp partition. So it boots up and then wants to activate windows. I try to but fails. Do I need to call microsoft or is something wrong with parallels or bootcamp?

    Well it appears that windows see's parallels as different hardware so it forces you to reactivate Windows. Man I hate Windows
