    Are the Parallels teams going to concentrate working on updating their USB to 2.0 and the ability to burn CDs on Parallels?

    Please don't get me wrong, I really appreciated that Parallels working with their Mac Pro customers build after build to solve their unlimited RAM problems. However fortunately for me Parallels was working perfectly for me back 1848 except for my speakerphone modem on my iMac duo core.

    To me when Parallels upgrades their USB to 2.0 and adds the ability to burn Windows CDs in Parallels, why would anyone want to bother with boot camp? When you can use two operating systems at once or 3 or 4 at once.

    1922 and 10.4.8 is working fine for me as well. I need the Windows XP for Autocad and Microsoft Project mainly. Both work great with Parallels.

    Where are you finding 1922? Going to the download page it only shows 1848. I found 1896.2 through a link someone else provided.

    Thank you. I've give tthat a try. So far i cannot get any version to run on my new 24" iMac (2.16, 10.4.8, 2GB.) It crashes right after entering the activation number off the CD.

    1922 should work for you “hopefully.”

    I feel so stupid asking this but ... 1922 is able to find my WinXP installer disk and gets to the point where I am asked to type F8 to accept the EULA. F8 opens Dashboard even after I have clicked into the PNMD window. I switched the key in System Preferences/Keyboard/mouse to F12 but now after a restart it still won't accept the F8 key to accept the EULA. Any ideas?

    Don't feel too bad because I even don't understand your question.

    Instead of F8 (and other F-keys) please use <FN> + <F8> key
    combination (for instance, <FN>+<F1> for <F1>)

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Here's a REAL stupid question, what are the F keys for on Macs?

    Obviously, I never used them on my Mac side. I'm a constant Mac user since '93.

    Try F9, F10, F11, F12 on your Mac ..... that's what the F keys are for .....

    I'm sure as additional generations of wild cat operating systems come out, Apple will start to make use of more F keys. :cool:

    Pre OS X ..... I don't think Apple ever used them on their own software.

    24" iMac + Win2000 + Build 1922 = Success!

    New user here with a stock 24" iMac Core 2 Duo (with 2 GB RAM). I just downloaded parallels trial build 1922, installed Windows 2000, and loaded up my CAD progam (Rhino3D). Very, very happy with performance. After living with Virtual PC for years and then with a PC accessed via RDC, Parallels is an absolute dream solution. Fast, fast, and more fast and my world of software choices just expanded exponentially. Nice job parallels team, you'll be getting my order tomorrow!

    See, it's working fantastically for most users.

    Now you can concentrate on USB 2.0 and adding the ability to burn Windows CDs! :D
