    I have not tried to install Parallels Desktop on my Mac Mini because of concerns that it won't recongnize my bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

    Do I need a corded mouse and keyboard?

    Thanks

    Nope.

    Don't worry about it.

    You don't capture the keyboard normally it is passed through OSX.

    At least I am 99% sure this is the case, certaily my wireless mouse works perfectly.

    No worries. I use Parallels on my MacBook Pro with a BT mouse and keyboard and it works just fine. The OS running inside of Parallels does *NOT* need to know about bluetooth... the Mac OS X running on the host computer passes keyboard and mouse input to parallels, so from its (Parallels) point of view, it is dealing with just a plain old keyboard and mouse.

    Thanks, dburr and Robster.

    That's the answer I was looking for.
