Yes! Thank you Delphyne. The boot.ini had both Safe Mode and the Recovery Console set to show on startup. I wouldn't have considered those "dual boot" so this helped me out a lot. I now even understand better what the Parallels/Boot Camp startup is about. I'm having some mouse problems, as well as graphics resolution problems, but on the whole this has been a successful endeavor. And, par for the course, Windows Activation has now kicked in three times already!
