    Oook, I'm kind of stuck.

    I recently installed the parallels demo and installed Windows XP on it with the copy already installed in boot camp. When I started it said it would have to reinstall the drivers for the mouse and keyboard and stuff, and I'm assuming that doesn't happen until I get logged in. I set my account to automatically log in and then started parallels again. It started to log in, then I got a message saying "Since the harddrive of this computer has changed significantly since windows was installed, you will need to re-activate your copy of windows" and that message is keeping it from logging it. I can't re-activate it, because the drivers for the keyboard and mouse aren't installed.


    So yeah, I'm stuck. Anyone have any idea what to do?

    Did you try re-installing the Parallels demo? And are you trying to install Parallels 4 or 3?
