    Hi everybody,

    I'm a new mac user and I searched for answers for my problem but didn't find any.

    The thing is I purchased a legal windows 32-bit software on Microsoft.com. When downloaded I created an image that gives Windows7.crd. When installing on parallels it gives me the message, No boot device... What do i have to do? I read i have to change my crd file in iso but how do i do that? Will it work afterwards.


    It is a macbook air last generation that i have.


    Thank you for your help!

    I think Microsoft offers a way to download an iso file instead. Might want to go back to your account at microsoft.com and look around for that option. Otherwise, you can do a google search for the iso files online and then use the license key that you purchased. That's what I did and it worked flawlessly.
