I booted Parallels from a "Bart PE" ISO image that includes Symantec Ghost 8. I then booted a PC using a CD-ROM made from that image, and used Ghost to clone the PC's drive to the Parallels VM virtual disk. The master disk has two partitions; a 31MB "dell utility" partition, and the remaining disk as an NTFS partition, with XP-SP2 installed on it. The ghost operation completed without error. I rebooted the Parallels VM. The XP boot logo was displayed for a few seconds, and then Parallels threw an error and emailed a report of the crash. The crash appens regardless of the "acceleration level" in Parallels, or whether I start XP in "safe mode" or normally.
