MacBook Pro-Parallels-multiple users
« on: April 01, 2008, 04:21:35 PM »
Since there seems to be some knowledgable Mac users on this forum, I will ask this question.

I am trying to setup a Macbook Pro running 10.4 with Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac and also xpsp2 to work with multiple users on the mac side.  (just for the record our school has 10 Macbooks that we just purchased last summer.  I have virtually  no experience with them as i am a Windows guy!)

I originally setup windows under the original user but now I am trying to get the main person who will be using this machine setup and it is not letting parallels run.

I have followed the instructions found here http://kb.parallels.com/entry/28/434/0/ and also this one http://kb.parallels.com/entry/28/119/.

Now when I try to run windows it gives a configuration error that it cannot find the floppy image. 

Please check your configuration!
Floppy image file /users/pawneeheights/documents/parallels/Microsoft windows xp/unattended.fdd could not be found.  Do you want to continue anyway?

If I answer yes then it goes ahead and boots into windows.

Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it??? :wallbash:  :feedback:
