    It didn't take long to goof up..Help...
    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?

    Thinking of forgeting about Parallels and downloading Bootcamp.
    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.

    It works!
    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.
