I guess you have the same problem as the guy in another thread... If I understand you correctly you have Windows XP running through Boot Camp and you want to run it through Parallels, right?

That's what I've found in Parallels Knowledge Base:

Parallels Desktop requires sp2.cab file to operate with your Boot Camp partition. By default, the file is stored at C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache.

To resolve the issue, copy the driver.cab file located at the same directory and rename it to sp2.cab.

There is also Parallels Official Forum. I think you should try to find the answer there if what I posted above doesn't work...

Good luck! :unsure:
