    I've probably installed/reinstalled my boot camp partition at least 20 times just messing around with different operating systems but have run into some problems all of a sudden.

    I finally put windows 7 on the bootcamp partition and love it, and read that parallels 4.0 can run windows 7, so i upgraded from 3.0. I even upgraded my RAM so i could allocate more memory in parallels.

    But for some reason, i cant seem to get the windows 7 drive to mount properly in osx. I'm not sure how windows 7 formats the drive but it seems to be in a way that osx cant read or recognize. i have macFUSE installed as well. When i went to run the parallels installer to use the bootcamp partition it says it does not have read/write access to the drive. When i do the mount the drive in osx it shows up as blank (0GB of 30GB used and no files shown). any suggestions?

    not sure it helps but windows 7 formats the drive as ntfs. I have it installed under bootcamp and can access the drive through OSX fine. I use Paragon NTFS, i've also got it running through parallels 4 and the drive mounts with that too.
