Hi, I have Parallels and I installed windows xp pro with sp2 onto my bootcamp partition. The install went great, there were no problems, but now when the virtual machine trys to boot, it just says "boot from hard drive..." and sits there. Istat shows massive cpu use, but nothing happens. I can boot from the install disk just fine. I tried reinstalling it, repartitioning etc but no dice.

Any ideas?
