    I have the same problem "Upgrade went well. But Netflix and other video apps still don't work. Windows says the video driver isn't up to snuff. " did you find any solution? Thanks!

    I didn't run into any problems but I really just use Windows 8 for Office 2010 which runs better in a VM than Office 2011 runs natively in OSX, SolSuite, YouVersion, and some other minor apps.

    Maybe reinstall Parallels Tools after you do the upgrade just to make sure they're good.

    I have the same issue: netflix will not work and asks that the video driver be updated. No video driver updates are available. Netflix will work using Windows 7. I use a Retina MacBook Pro 15"

    This is the second time I ask this question since I had no answer to my previous post...

    http://kb.parallels.com/en/114973

    This topic and the above knowledgebase entry were posted 6 months ago and still no update.
    This topic was sticky and no longer is !

    So what is the situation regarding Parallels Desktop 7 and Windows 8 upgrade on Bootcamp ?
    Is it possible to safely upgrade to Windows 8 a previous installation of Windows 7 on Bootcamp and use Parallels Desktop 7 ?

    Please provide an answer whether it's "yes it's possible", "no it's not possible" or "yes we are still investigating on this" (if this is not a way to not respond to the problem).
    In any case, give us a status about this problem !

    Hi TimA32,

    Apple announced official support for Windows 8 in their BootCamp only last week: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5628
    Parallels development team is now working to take advantage of this new feature of Apple BootCamp.

    This thread is on the top of my list, I will share more news as soon as I have it. Thanks for posting!

    Thank you, Andrew. Any internal updates on a timeline for this? Just checking - You guys have been pretty responsive / quick to Apple's changes in the past.

    Hi everyone,

    New build of Parallels Desktop 8.0.18480 is now available in auto-updater. If you haven't seen it yet, please update manually: click on Parallels Desktop > Check for Updates.

    I don't have news about Parallels Desktop 7 for now, sorry. Will keep you informed about the changes.

    Thanks!

    I have upgraded Windows Preview to Windows 8 Pro on Parallels 7.
    Now the VM can't see my Mac folders. Neither can it recognize my external HD.
    Can anyone please help?

    Thank you.
