    Is there a way to turn a Windows Xp virtual machine to a Boot Camp drive. The reason I want to do it is my Windows XP disk is not a Service pack 2 disk.

    you could slipstream your old install disk with the new sp2 disk. there are plenty of programs that will allow you to do this.

    I don't know why everybody says you can only install WinXP/SP2 onto Parallels???

    I just installed the OEM (WinXP/SP1) disk that came with the PC I bought 5 years ago..... Once it was installed.. I ran Windows Update [61 patches], then I downloaded and installed SP2... no problem..... then I ran Windows Update again [another 35 patches].....

    And then I ran Parallels Transporter on my new MacPro.. 10 hours later [yeah its slow].... I had a perfectly working clone of my PC running on my MacPro

    Runs flawlessly...
