    Hi guys, I've formatted my Bootcamp partition and reinstalled all bootcamp driver to solve some troubles but now when I try to create parallels file I select "Custom installation" but the "Use Boot camp" voice in the menu is disabled. Why?? I'm using parallels on Leopard..

    Best regards.

    Hello,

    please try to do the following:
    1. Disconnect all external devices.
    2. Remove Parallels by means of the Uninstall application.
    3. Repair disk permissions using the MacOSX disk utility.
    4. Restart the MAC.
    5. Install Parallels.
    6. Restart the MAC once again.
    7. Create a bootcamp virtual machine.

    Best regards,
    Stacey

    Please start the Boot Camp Assistant and try to do anything with your Boot Camp partition; for example, change its size. Then try to create a VM.

    It might be a problem with your Boot Camp partition after its reinstallation because Parallels cannot "see" this partition. Is it possible for you to reinstall it one more time?

    Best regards,
    Stacey
