    I am using Brand new Parallels 3 on my MacBook (OSX 10.4.10, Core 2 Duo), with no luck. I did download and install the newest update to Parallels.

    I tried to use the Windows CD with the Installation Assistant, and it couldn't be read, so I created an ISO image with Disk utility.

    I keep getting the error: No Boot Drive Available. I am not a PC person, am am not even sure what a boot drive is.

    Can anyone help?

    Please restart the MAC, create a new virtual machine, and start the installation process from scratch.

    Please make sure the CD is bootable. Also please check that the virtual cd/dvd is set to the "default cd/dvd" if you are using a CD disk and "Connect to image" in case of the ISO image,

    Best regards,
