    If it is any consolation, I too have had the same issue. I was able to at least run the installer by quitting the Wi-Fi connection after the update had downloaded, but after it had run, there was no change to my system at all. Running a clean install results in some sort of graphics error where after logging in, all I get is a black screen. I'm not sure if the issue here is Microsoft's or Parallels' but I'm leaning toward Microsoft. Many people on real PCs have had the same issues.
