Hi,

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.
