Hello, all. I've searched through this forum briefly and I have not found an answer to my question. My question is as follows: Where can I find an image of Windows XP / Windows 7 to use for Parallels desktop? I've been a Mac user for literally my entire life, so I don't have a copy of an installation disk for windows and I was wondering where on the internet I could find one. A torrent would do perfectly fine, but I can't seem to find one that actually has a disk image because a majority of them are just cracks.

Thank you so much! (:

We do not support illegally obtained software. Your best bet is to purchase a copy of Windows, either XP or Win 7. A system builder's OEM version is the cheapest and can be had for reasonable prices at places like newegg.com.

No discussion of any piracy is allowed here at Mac Forums.

You need a legal XP with SP2 or Windows 7 to use with Bootcamp.
