I have installed windows on my macbook osx 10.6 using parallels desktop 6. I did not partition the drive. I am unable to run windows at boot time. Is there any way to fix this issue so i can boot via windows when i press option key at boot time. Thank you.

You cannot boot the machine into Windows when installing it as a virtual machine, whether using Parallels or any other virtualization product. You would start Parallels after booting into OS X and then start Windows.
If you want to boot to it, then you need to use the BootCamp Assistant.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
