    Hello all,

    So I've got a unibody 17" macbook pro.

    I installed bootcamp on it and then Vista 64Bit. Installed all the drivers. Everything working perfectly.

    I then went back into Osx and installed Parallels 4.0.

    I've created a virtual machine using my bootcamp partition but then it boots into this non of the drivers are there. The video card shows vga, etc.
    Why isn't this picking up the drivers I installed? Do I have to installed the drivers off the osx disk again to get this to work?

    You have to install parallels tools, its in one of the menu's at the top when you open parallels in Window mode, you have to log into Vista first.
    You should have some flashing message at the bottom of the parallels window when Windows Vista is loaded telling you this?
