Windows 7: Vista 32 to 7 64bit (bootsect good) error: incompatability

Windows 7 Professional

Thanks Derekimo for your continued awesome support.

I didn't read that link to the multiple threads, but I did contact Parallels support.

Turns out the fix was installing Parallels Tools.

Without that, there was no fix, but with it - there was simply a return to standard options "sync with OSX" and it automatically corrected the rest.

I am much obliged for your interest in this thread, and I'll keep a copy of it for my records in case there is a "next time".

Much appreciated, George
