    Yea the remote disk thing could be a problem i suggest taking a .ISO image of the windows XP disc, and trying installing it like that. That might solve your problem.

    You probably just need to update Parallels Desktop to build 5584 (btw it's not that you are running, it is 3.0 build 5540, which is actually a beta build).

    There are a lot of discussion regarding Macbook Air crashing with Parallels. Apparently Parellels is lookiong at this at the moment. I have MBA 1.6/80 and have stopped using Parallels because Parallels keep crashing with the MBA.:mad:
