I installed Paralells in my new iMac. I started to install WindowsXP and I did something, moved the mouse or something, and the installation stopped. It is now suspended and I can't do anything. I tried removing and re-installing Parallels but the Windows installation screen is still there frozen. How do I get out of this.

Control click on parallels (the icon in the dock that is) and click force quit?

Will I have as many problems with Bootcamp as I am having with Parallels. I was loving this iMac until I started with Parallels. But I need my software.

Boot Camp turns your Mac into a PC. So it is exactly the same as a real PC. Well, it IS a real PC.

How hard is it to setup bootcamp. I am getting pretty stressed right now with parallels.
This mac is beautifull and I would like to make it work but I just can't through all my software out.

Sorry everyone, it was operator trouble. I figured out what I was doing wrong and now my programs install in parallels. Horay, I love my iMac again.

Cool that your problem is solved but care to post what mistake you made so it might help out others in the same situation you were in?
