Also, please try to run Parallels in super-user mode from Terminal.
For me it's hard to understand your problems because my english is not the best and I haven't got your problems, but if you report (maybe with screenshots?) exactly your errors, config files and HW configuration... Maybe I'll try to solve the problems.

1) Install Parallels and made XP partition Active and Bootable. Rebooted to confirm.
2) Completed Setup Wizard as given in guide
3) Make change in the .pvs file (added disk0s1 - WinXP partition)
4) Clicked Run
5) Parallels gave me an "Unable to Mount Error"

So if you are using it too, then here is the problem.
I have the EXACT same problem with my MacBook Pro running Vista with real bootcamp. (0:0 and 0:1 that says no bootable media, etc)

I guess is because your Windows partition is not really bootable, but your HD is. What I mean is that maybe the Windows bootloader is in the HD MBR, and not in the partition MBR.
Maybe I'll try to see what bootloader we can use to boot Windows in this case...

forgot about the whole xp thing. I do not believe that it is possible to virtualize a ntfs-xp-disk on my machine.
I downloaded wingrub but since I have not got any of my other disks connected, I'm guessing that it won't work.
Possibly I am going to have to edit my darwin bootloader to see my xp installation hdd.
Also, parallels sees my xp installation fine, it just won't boot it. It just sits there indefinitely, displaying the message I am not to stop the vm or alter the guest os in any way or risk data loss. And what's more, when I boot into xp natively, it says something about paralells tools and not being able to find them anymore. That of course, makes sense.
So now I've booted into xp natively by removing the sata and ide cables where nessecary and am going to convert my xp partition to fat32 from ntfs with partitionmagic. I think I've done that before a really long time ago. Luckely I can put stuff I'm going to need on my pb and external hdds.

Can you tell me what's the difference between this topic and this one(NTFS Read/Write Support Finally here!, Instructions!!).
because, as far as I found they are talking about the same thing. accessing Win files from OSX and OSX files from Win.
please correct me, cause I think I'm wrong, and I haven't got the idea.

I just saw that Parallels unmount the disk whe it runs the virtual machine but it says that "Boot Camp is not installed on this computer"
Any trick for that?

Just tried with same "disk0s1 error".
Posted 08 February 2007 - 06:12 AM
Because I have one disk for Mac OS and another one for Files (that I intent to use as installation for XP).
Also, I migrated my XP Image from VMware and it worked great, but the Linux and the Win98 images are no so great after the migration to Parallels.

Because hardware differs things go horribly wrong. Yes, seeing your partition boot in Parallels is very sweet, but having to reinstall all drivers on next real windows boot really sux...
Posted 09 February 2007 - 02:18 PM
Also... At this point seems that I missed something, but I wonder what...
You don't have to reinstall drivers everytime.
I just installed native drivers booting Windows in native, and then I installed Parallels drivers.
It works like magic both in Parallels and native, so...
Anyway, I am wondering if it depends from hardware specifics.
My hardware is:
- AMD64 3200+ Processor (SSE2/SSE3/PAE)
- 80 GB ATA HD + 160 GB SATA HD
- ASUS A8V-E Deluxe motherboard with VIA chipset
- NVidia GeForce 6200 TC
- 512 MB DDR
Also, my Hackintosh is running Mac OS X 10.4.8.
Posted 09 February 2007 - 07:59 PM
I tried but same error,
Is there any file that could let parallels think Boot Camp is installed? I'll try to install the program and see what happens...

I put A Second HD with only windows and works.
