Hi toy4runner,

Did you check the permissions of the folders that need to be openend by parallels to get to the file? (just select the folders one by one and for ech of them press apple - I and check the permissions section of the information pane. Chnaces are Parallels is trying to access a folder but doesn't have the right permission.
If all seems okay, check this:

How to install ubuntu linux apple macbook pro notebook


Safest option would be to purchase a specialised virtualisation software product like paralleles Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac The 1 choice of customers worldwide to run. OR Fusion http://www.vmware.com/au/products/fusion

then download an .iso which is a cd image of Ubuntu
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-mac-osx

the LTS version of Ubuntu stands for long term support, the version that
will most likely work on your mac will be the 64bit version.

I would suggest using a virtualisation program rather than replacing the
mac operating system so that you can be running both mac os and ubuntu
at the same time, without having to shutdown one to access the other.

Hopr this helps.

How to run MS Windows on a MAC computer?


Hi guys,

Today I will show you how to run the Windows operating system on your mac laptop or desktop.

Step 1:
It is a simple process but will require some software which you will need to download and please make sure you have enough storage minimum should be 6 GB for the windows setup to install otherwise it will NOT work.

Step 2:
Ok first of all you will need to install Parallels Desktop which works like VM-Ware but it is for MAC so its different it ritualizes both of the OS so you can choose to use both on your mac without the need of Boot Camp.

Step 3:
It is very simple you will just need the Windows ISO file or a disc copy. Than what you will need is Parallels that you can get from the following site: http://pctrickstips.com/download-parallels-desktop-11-for-mac-full-free/

It supports both x86 and x64 environments so do not worry about anything else if you need any further help ping me up and I will be more than happy to help.

Happy Virtualisation ;)

How do you fix a Windows XP VHD within a Parallels environment?


Critical data can be extracted with the help of a tech by removing the Hard Drive and transferring it to a CD or DVD. Not being able to boot up can be the result of any number of possible problems, but you CAN get your data. Hope this is not too discouraging for you?

My macbook shows a white screen and a sound only and after that nothing happens


JUST TRY TO FOLLOW THE STEPS IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL
Many computer shoppers choose to buy a Mac not only to use OS X, but Windows as well. That is one strong advantage that Macs have in the Mac vs PC war. Apple computers are capable of running Windows, either through Bootcamp or virtual machines.
So, why aren't Windows PC's capable of running OS X? Well, Windows PC's are capable of running OS X. But, it is against Apple's licensing agreement to do so. Thus, this article is intended for educational and demonstration purposes only. If you want to run OS X the best way possible, get a Mac.
*In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. If it does not, you may receive errors. For the most part, any newer processor lines: Core 2 Duo, Quad Core, and Core i7 should all work fine.
But, don't expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. The processor must be Intel and not AMD*
Because we will be installing OS X on top of Windows through a virtual machine, the first step is to get some virtual machine software. For this demo, we will be using VMware's Workstation 7.
If you do not feel like purchasing Workstation 7 at this time, you can get a limited trial here. The download may take a good half an hour to complete. Workstation is a 512MB file.
Upon download, go ahead and install Workstation 7 onto your computer. The installation process is very simple just launch the installer, and the VMware installer will guide you through the rest.
One thing to note, when it asks your if you want to do a custom install or a typical install, choose typical install. After the installer finishes, restart your computer
Now that you have Workstation 7 installed, you need a pre-configured VMware virtual machine file to install Snow Leopard on top of. Download this file (alt download) and save it to your desktop.
After you have the pre-configured virtual machine file downloaded, you will need to extract the files using WinRAR or another archive utility. If you do not have an archive utility, you can get WinRAR here.
Note: This file is just a disk image framework, no viruses or anything like that. VMware Workstation uses the disk image format to save and contain virtual machines.
Time to start installing Snow Leopard. Launch VMware Workstation by using the path Start > All Programs > VMware > VMware Workstation. Open up the VMware disk image framework that you just downloaded and extracted.
Select File > Open. Navigate to your Snowy_VM folder, open it, open up the next folder that says "Mac OS X 10.6 Server (experimental).vmwarevm, and choose the 2KB file that is named Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental). Click the open button to load the virtual machine.
From the Mac OS X Server tab in the VMware Workstation window, click the edit virtual machine settings icon. You may adjust the hard drive size, memory, etc, to your liking.
Select CD/DVD (IDE) and under the Connection settings, select Use ISO Image File. Click the Browse button and navigate to the Darwin_Snow.iso which is located in your Snowy_VM folder. Click the Open button to select the virtual machine.
Now it's time to power on the virtual machine. Click the Power on this virtual machine option. As soon as the process starts, hold down the F8 key on your keyboard. You should be prompted with a boot menu screen.
If you have not done so already, insert your OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD into your computer's CD/DVD drive. So far, you have loaded a workable virtual machine and framework into VMware Workstation.
Now it's time to actually install Snow Leopard onto that virtual machine disk image. You should see some settings icons located at the bottom right portion of the VMware window. Right-click the icon that looks like a CD and choose settings from the pop up menu.
Go back into the boot screen and select the option C Boot from DVD. Press the F8 button on your keyboard for advanced options and type "-v" without the quotes and hit enter. Now, VMware Workstation should boot your Snow Leopard install disc. It may take a couple of minutes to load
That's all there is to it. You should now be at the normal Snow Leopard install screen. Click continue on the first screen that comes up. On the second screen, click the utilities option in the install window and select disk utility. Use disk utility to change the hard drive format type to OS X Extended (Journaled). Exit disk utility and let OS X install completely.
Upon install of Snow Leopard, your virtual machine will restart. After it restarts you will need to do a couple of things to get into Snow Leopard. Select CD/DVD options, like you did before, and use the Use ISO Image File option.

Try downloading the Mac drivers at address http://www.cnet.com.au/downloads/soa/HP-ScanJet-5300c/0,239030384,2113661s,00.htm
If that doesnt solve your problem, you might to make sure your virtual machine is actually able to communicate with the physical computer and is able to access its resources

How i install window xp in macbook with preinstalled os x


Boot camp and/ or Parallels. You need software to create a virtual, bootable partition. The version of windows you install cannot be OEM, or a transferred license. I would recommend LINUX instead of windows XP. It's free and stable and like OS X, based on UNIX.

Parallels


Install bootcamp. It is the certified parallel for the dual core. If you already have it installed, try installing XP again, or Vista.

If you purchase a program called Boot Camp, VMWare Fusion, or Parallels you can load both XP and OSX to run dually or separate.

I would suggest you look in to Apple's Bootcamp. Although you do not want to run in a dual-boot configuration, Bootcamp allows you to create a CD with all of the Mac's windows drivers.

I appologize but I am not totally sure if 1) the Bootcamp drivers contain a camera driver and 2) if the camera works at all within Parallels.

Worth a shot though.
