OK - I have a MacPro and just purchased Parallels to make use of my Bootcamp installation while in OS X.
I installed the 3094 per the instructions, but Parallels VM does nothing on attempt to boot the VM. The CPU is pegged for quite a while but nothing is happening in the bios window.
I have 2 hard disks, the second hard disk has XP on it (essentially a standard windows install with Bootcamp drivers). My other disk is OS X 10.4.8 with a small partition in FAT32 for transfering files back and forth. In disk utility, the windows XP disk (NTFS) shows up first.
I have Windows XP Pro 32 bit retail.
When I try to run the VM, the small FAT32 partition is unmounted. Nothing else happens. SInce then, I have rebooted into XP using bootcamp and it is OK. There is no Parallels option. I went back into OS X and now it unmounts the FAT32 partition and does not return it when I close Parallels. I can remount it when I use disk utility.
It seems like Parallels is trying to find XP on the small partition I made (using Bootcamp) instead of the second disk I made installing XP like on a PC.
My mount info:
/dev/disk0s2 on / (local, journaled)
devfs on /dev (local)
fdesc on /dev (union)
<volfs> on /.vol
/dev/disk1s1 on /Volumes/WinXP_Pro (local, read-only)
automount -nsl  on /Network (automounted)
automount -fstab  on /automount/Servers (automounted)
automount -static  on /automount/static (automounted)
/dev/disk0s3 on /Volumes/TRANSFER (local)
Hope I can get a procedure for when I return from the break.
Thanks for any help.
