Installed XP Home using BootCamp, running Parallels 3.0.

I am able to boot into Windows just fine with no problems, and no missing drivers.

When using virtual machine to access Windows while in MacOS, I can't get coherence to work. I click on the button, and nothing happens. Have looked through the settings, and am not sure which one might be causing the issue. For what it's worth, full screen mode does work.

Also, when using XP through VM, there are two devices that can't be installed (it tries to install them through the Windows Found New Hardware wizard). The devices in question are "Other PCI Bridge" and "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". I've tried to install them using the Mac drivers disc that was made during the BootDisk install, but no luck. These drivers are not missing when I boot directly into Windows.

Could the coherence problem and the missing drivers be connected?

Does anyone have any ideas?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
