    A little confused about parallels. I couldn't get the XP disk to work directly so I made an iso from it and installed into parallels from that. I would assume that, like the XP disk, once it is installed, the ISO can be removed, right? However, when I remove the ISO and launch parallels, it gives me an error saying the ISO is missing (but seems to run anyway).

    Is there any reason why I shouldn't delete the ISO?

    No you can delete the iso.

    It sounds like you have left the parallels drive thinking the image is still there though.

    You need to go into the (parallels) drive config and eject the iso as it were. At the moment is still thnking it i there so is giving you grief on running.
