ZDNet blogger, Adrian W Kingsley-Hughes wanted to run Windows XP and Windows Vista on a MacBook. To accomplish this task, he downloaded Apple BootCamp and Parallels for Mac. He used BootCamp to run XP and Parallels for Windows Vista RTM. This gallery shows you the installation process for each application and what Windows XP and Vista look like running on a MacBook.

So far I've been using Parallels for Mac build 1970

Booting up Vista on Parallels build 3120 after upgrading Parallel Tools - got this far before locking. This meant repairing Vista.

Now it works after a repair - here is Parallels running Vista in Coherence mode.
