    MBP 17" 2.33G 10.5.4 3GB
    Win XP SP3 on boot camp NTFS
    Parallel 3.0 5608

    I had try many times to load XP for the first time but no luck. But I had success load boot camp before using SP2. This time, it is a fresh new install of XP SP2 then upgrade to SP3.

    What I exactly did:
    Run Parallels Desktop.app from OSX >
    in OS Installation Assistant CLICK (NEXT) >
    SELECT (Custom), CLICK (NEXT) >
    OS Type (Windows), OS Version (Win XP), CLICK (NEXT) >
    RAM (2048), CLICK (NEXT) >
    HD Option (Use Boot Camp), CLICK (NEXT) >
    Network (Shared), CLICK (NEXT) >
    Name (Microsoft Windows XP), Enable file sharing, , CLICK (NEXT) >
    Performance (VM), CLICK (NEXT) >
    Start virtual machine, , CLICK (Finish) >
    *******Nothing Happen*********

    I had check multiple times, the XP is working fine under boot camp. And the Parallels is freshly download and installed.

    Any idea how to solve this?

    thanks ahead

    Reduce the RAM to 1528 or 1024.

    DO you install Windows Second time from Boot Camp assistant?
    If not in Parallels Desktop -Configuration Editor -Hard Disk 1-Advanced click Clear

    -------------------------------> can not select this option, as Parallels never able to finish the "OS Installation Assistant" stage.

    I fix the problem.

    I uninstall the Parallels, also remove all Parallels files that hidden in Library (system and user) by hand. Then reinstall.

    After that Parallels locate the bootcamp thing right out of box.

    thanks
