    I just got Parallels 7 and I have both Windows XP and 7 keys. I oroginally wanted to install Windows XP, due to SSDs making it boot within mere seconds, but I read about a partition alignment problem that windows XP has. Does that problem affect XP installed in Parallels as well? I have a mid 2009 macbook pro hence why I really would want XP on it due to it not taking much resources. Thanks!
