    Hi I just installed Parallels and am having trouble installing Windows XP. I get a message saying that it can find the ASMS file, even though I checked and its definitely on the installation cd.

    I tried saving the cd on my desktop and manually typing in the location, but that doesnt work. Unless im typing the wrong location in?

    Please help!

    I'm trying to install Windows XP. That link talks about other versions of windows. It also says to press the F10 key but that doesnt do anything cause I have a mac.

    You may need to hold the Function (Fn) key as well to get F10 instead of whatever capability is assigned to F10.
