I'm using an XP boot disk in an attempt to install a VM. However, now after three tries â€” and I have gone through the troubleshooting â€” I am still getting an error that says that the installation has failed and that I should remove any new hardware. But, what new hardware? I tried a trial of the older Parallels a while back and liked it, although I would only be using it for gaming, so never purchased. But, it worked. Now, I can't even come close to installing XP.
