Ok, didn't know that. Might be worth a try though, the only thing lost would be the time spent cloning.I think that the cloning method causes XP to blue screen on starting due to the different drivers. Same thing will happen if you take a hard drive with XP installed and swap it between a Dell and a HP PC.
A couple of things to keep in mind here with this approach.You might be able to use a cloning program to clone the xp install into the BC partition from within Parallels' XP ...
Haven't tried it, but it might be worth a shot.
I meant no offense, it's a general feeling as a lot of people try to 'cheat' the system. Nowhere were you called out as being one of them. Nor do I call out anyone.Thanks for all the replies. I somehow found my install CD and everything worked out well.
KKat69, be as skeptical as you like, but I did buy a legitimate copy from my university. For some of us, our OS's are like our underwear and are easily misplaced.
