Vista in Parallels

I'm an new user to Mac's and MacForums.
i have a MBP 2.33 with 2gig of RAM. I am running Parallels for the occasional use of Windows.
When i tried to upgrade to windows i got an error mesage:
This computer is not compliant with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) standard. Windows must be installed onto a computer that supports ACPI. Contact your computer manufacturer for a BIOS update or install Windows on an ACPI-compliant computer.
A copy of this report has been saved to your desktop
Has anyone installed Vista successfully on Parallels or know what i need to getit running.
Sorry if this is not the correct forum for this query and feel free to move it if necessary

I hope you didn't buy vista without checking it first. The first thing it came up with in Google was that it didn't work yet!
