    Folks,

    I'm creating a slipstreamed version of Windows XP with only the required drivers to install it using Bootcamp. The idea is to have a smaller disk and an easier setup.

    My point is. If I try to install Parallels using the Bootcamp option I receive the message "Parallels Desktop cannot find necessary drivers to configure your Boot Camp partition".

    By looking at the help when parallels first runs it looks for the files driver.cab and sp1.cab or sp2.cab to install additional drivers needed by the virtual machine.

    As I'm slipstreaming my Install Disk I don't have all the drivers there. My question is:

    "What are the drivers Parallels looks for when it first boots the partition?". I would like to prepare a slipstreamed CD with those drivers inside.

    Thanks
