    I need win xp for a test. Downloaded the ISO from MS site but parallels won't recognize the OS.
    Same with VMware fusion.

    Anyone else running windows XP on a mac? How'd you get it to work?

    Not going to post the details but lets just say I need to run an old (pre-2010) software and it won't work on anything but XP.

    I got Parallels 9 here and it works just fine. It has to be something wrong with that ISO.

    Try to Google the specific error you get.

    Tried googling but didn't find anything helpful. Not a frequent parallels user so maybe I'm doing something wrong.
