I have just got a new imac core duo and am trying to install xp using parallels (installs fine with bootcamp). I have a new oem edition of xp pro sp2 full edition and have downloaded parallels beta6. I have created the virtual machine using their recommended setup but when i put the xp disk in and windows set up loads i get an error code 512 and sometimes 7 when the kernel.dll file is loading and the installer quits and the virtual machine reboots. Any ideas, as the disk worked fine with bootcamp?? PS: Its an imac 2.0ghz 1gb ram 256mb graphics.
