    Hey there- I've been following the threads and doing my homework on getting Windows 7 to run on my Mac via Parallels 6 but so far no luck with activation. Most info for Win on Mac is focused on Bootcamp but that isn't an option for me as all my drives are RAID and therefore won't boot Windows. Does anyone know of a guide or thread that has Parallels figured out. I have tried using the grub.fdd floppy loader method but it doesn't seem to do anything and I feel like I'm missing some steps. Thanks in advance for any clues!​

    EDIT: Nevermind this thread, I got this to work and it was much easier than I was making it out to be. Parallels makes you enter a Windows product code to start the installation. Just use whatever one you can find that works to get you in the door. Once your W7 install is complete, simply run the DAZ loader and it will work like a charm. Easy stuff.
