So I got myself a new Macbook like a week ago. The white one with 2.0 GHz and 1 GB RAM. I've always wanted to try out Parallels - running XP in OS X side by side. That's super for a webdesigner like me. Today I finally did. However, my experience with it is not that great, I'm afraid. I created a 10 GB partition with the Boot Camp Assistant, burned the Mac drivers and installed XP on a clean NTFS partition (I've been trying to get Paralells to work with FAT32 also, but that didn't work, so I chose NTFS this time, and since this is a clean install, I don't mind writing those steps down). Everything went smooth, booted in to XP, installed the Mac drivers, rebooted and installed Parallels Tools. Booted back into OS X and launched Parallels Desktop Beta 3106 to create a virtual machine. Clicked to "Use Boot Camp" and then finally the moment I was waiting for. Loading ... loading ... *holding thumbs* ... loading ... is it gonna work? ... what's taking so long? ... loading ... eh, what the heck, let's kill this app, something must be wrong. Launching it again for another tr... Oops. It froze. What the? ... Hmm. Let's wait a couple of minutes to see if something starts moving. ... Nope, it's dead alright. Fuck. *Click* power off. *Click* power on. Grey Apple logo. Hm, what's this? "You, need, to, restart ..." what? Heh, okay, sure. *Click click*. Grey Apple logo. I love that logo. Oops, that thing again. Okay, let's try XP. *Click click*. Okay, now I need to choose which profile to start. Let's try standard XP and profile 1. Hmm, funny. Only XP boots on my Mac. Let's try OS X one more time. *Click click* What the? Okay, let's try to boot with the install disc. *Click click, c*. Cd's spinning, seems to work ... NOT. What the hell happend?! And now I can't even boot XP, because the keyboard is not working so I can choose profile.
