I have a new 15" MacBook Pro, 2.3 GHz, 8 GBytes memory, high resolution screen, anti-glare. It works fine. I installed "Parallels Desktop 6, Switch to Mac Edition" and tried to install Windows 7 (not migrate it from a PC). I keep getting the dreaded Blue Screen of Death as the Windows 7 Setup Program runs. I have tried to install it several times, getting the same result, although the setup programs stops at various places. I've tried a new Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit OEM DVD. Thinking it may be because of the OEM edition, I tried an older Windows 7 Professional 32 bit DVD, and had the same problem. I now have four Virtual Machines, each with a failed installation of Windows 7. Can't remove them until I get a successful virtual machine.

I installed "Office:mac 2011, Home & Business". No problems, installed and working fine.

Anyone have any suggestions as how to proceed?
