    Hi,

    I installed Vista Home Premium on my iMac using Boot Camp this morning. When I try to create a new VM in Parallels using the boot camp partition I get this message:

    You are booting your guest operating system into PAE (Physical Address Extension) mode. Parallels Desktop does not support guest OS running in PAE mode. Please boot your guest OS in non-PAE mode to avoid this error.

    Can anybody tell me how I boot in non-PAE mode or explain why I am getting this message?

    I am using Build 5584.

    Thanks

    I found the problem. I deleted the Windows XP VM that had been using my Boot Camp partition and it no longer showed in the VM list. However, the .pvs file was still in the directory? Once I deleted the XP .pvs file everything was ok.
