I have a 24-inch iMac (Early 2009) 3.06GHz Core 2 Duo with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 video card (512 MB) and 4GB SDRAM. Parallels 5 itself would launch fine but when I start my Windows 7 Pro VM (Boot Camp partition), it would take about 5 minutes or longer to boot and I don't get the startup sound either when the user list shows up. After clicking on a user, it would then take quite a long time to get to my desktop screen and everything just seems to hang. This new 5.0.9308 update doesn't seem to have fixed anything. I have my VM set to use 1 core, 2GB of SDRAM and 256MB of VRAM. What's weird is that Parallels 5 seems to launch another Win 7 Pro VM that I have on a 13-inch MacBook Pro just fine and well within a reasonable 3 minutes plus a quick transition to my desktop screen. I don't know why it doesn't seem to like the iMac though. Right now, it's just unusable except when I dual-boot to it via Boot Camp. I don't know what to do and it's gonna take Parallels a long time from now to issue another update.
