I've seen many threads on this problem, but none of the proposed solutions have worked for me. I tried contacting support, but my support has expired (less than a year after purchase?!) and there's no way I'm paying $15 to support this crap software. The support process is so convoluted (multiple registrations, Problem IDs that aren't stored unless you copy/paste, juggling passwords, etc) that I figured I'd give things a shot here.
Anyway, I just did a fresh install of Parallels 6 (build 12106) in OS X 10.7.3. I have an existing Windows 7 Boot Camp partition that works perfectly. Immediately after installing Parallels and running it the first time, I get the following error:
The detailed output is:Failed to configure the Boot Camp partition's hard disk.
A disk configuration error has occurred. Make sure that you have read/write permissions for the disk.
Does anyone know a way around this problem? My Problem ID is 14730723.Error: PRL_ERR_DISK_READ_FAILED (0x80021029)
