XP Mode - MacBook Pro - "User does not have sufficient access rights"
I'm using a MacBook Pro 6,1. 17", i5 2.53Ghz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD.
Installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 using Boot Camp.
I need to install two instances of XP Mode so that I can run native IE7 and IE8 browsers for web development purposes. I've successfully set this up on my desktop but since I am currently traveling I really need access to the same thing on my laptop using Boot Camp.
I've read in many other forums and websites that there's no problem installing XP Mode on the MacBook Pro using Boot Camp. When I go through the initial setup, I get the following error:
"The virtual machine configuration could not be created. User does not have sufficient access rights"
I also made sure that Windows Virtual Machine was running (although it wasn't when I first tried).
So now I'm running out of ideas. I've turned off UAC, reboot the computer, and gone through many other options I could think of. Nothing is working.
I read that the BIOS needs to be set but of course since this is a MacBook Pro I am not going into any BIOS.
Would really appreciate suggestions.
