    First let me apologize if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum.

    I have experiencing a nerve wrecking issue when trying to install windows vista 32bit on parallels desktop 7. I am currently running following specs :

    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1
    2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
    4GB Ram

    The steps I taken are below up to the point where it completely messed up :

    1). I downloaded & installed the trial version of parallels desktop 7
    2). I inserted my windows vista 32bit operating system disk
    3). I opened parallels desktop 7 & under file clicked "new"
    4). I selected the disk to install from.
    5). I went though the options as normal & I used all default options ( please note this could be where I went wrong that is why I am asking for help ) I use the default selection to install windows under the default disk partition which was 64GB allocated ).

    6). It extracted all the files needed, & then it restarted then just completely froze on the "completing installation..."

    I have tried the "shift f10" that I googled that didn't work at all. So any thoughts suggestions and solutions are welcomed!

    & thanks in advanced for taking your time to look at this & offer some help!

    Did you manage to resolve this?

    I see that no-one has replied to your post in six months, but did you manage to resolve this? I'm having exactly the same problem...
