Vista and Parallels

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Does anyone know why the latest Vista (the pre-RC1 version) won't install under Parallels. I'm at work now, so I don't remember the exact wording... but basically, when I try to install it, I get an error that says the type of BIOS isn't compatible. I know the MacBooks use the next gen BIOS replacement... but wouldn't XP have the same problem?

    Parallels doesn't support ACPI yet, which Vista requires. This will be fixed in a few months.
