    I recently upgraded from my MBP to a new i5 iMac, and with the new HD space I'm now able to use some valuable disk space for a windows partition. I installed WIN XP (seemed fine in Boot Camp), and began the process of installing Parallels 5. I was able to create a virtual machine, but when I try to run Parallels it goes into a "configuring your virtual machine" window (Steps 1 of 4) that just seems to run and run (ran it all last night with no progress further than about 25%).

    I have never tried to run windows on a mac before so I'm admittedly a nube on this issue, but what am I doing wrong? I've searched for this problem here, elsewhere on the web, and on the Parallels troubleshooting page and didn't see anything. Any suggestions?
