Boot Camp and Parallels working... just! But... Just a couple of other variations on this whole thing that maybe someone can help me with. I followed the whole conversation after my Boot Camp installation and my Parallels both went down. reset it all up (winXP on a MacBook running Parallels 3.4560(?)). I set up the hardware profiles as suggested and very carefully installed Boot Camp drivers in the Boot Camp one and Parallels Tools in the other. Now I can get into both but: 1. As soon as my Boot Camp starts up, it freezes at the Hardware Choice page: possibly not freezes - maybe just the keyboard and trackpad are non-functional. Either way, the only way out is to force power down. BUT if I hold down Fn-F8 on startup, I go to the "Safe Mode" page: I choose Normal Windows XP (default), choose my winXP installation, and then it goes to the Hardware Profile page and it works fine - I can choose my Boot Camp profile and all loads great. So what is going on here? 2. When I boot into Parallels, the whole way through the boot process my screen has this huge warning that "Parallels Tools initialisation underway" and don't touch anything or risk data loss"!!! Goes through fine and goes away at the login screen. Finally, my Parallels is unable to upgrade to the latest build 5160 - it downloads it and then then hangs. Any thoughts team?
