[OS X] Unable to use BootCamp on Parallels

Click for full size
I have BootCamp on VMWare fine, and now wanted to compare how it ran in Paralles but unable to do so.

Running rMBP 15, Lion 10.8.2

Make sure VMWare (or it's daemon's) are not running. If they are it prevents other applications from making changes. Hence the read/write permission error. You might need to uninstall VMWare in order to release it.

Did you do a command I on the disk and made sure you do have permissions to read and write to it?

Closing the application does not stop the daemon (which by default starts running when you boot the computer up). I would check in /Library/LaunchDaemons for anything referencing VMWare. Also, I would check /Library/LaunchAgents, and /Library/StartupItems as well as the user equivalents: ~/Library/xxx. If you find aything simply pull it to another folder and then restart the computer.

I'll check but before I transfered everything to my Retina i had them both running simultaneously 1 with bootcamp 1 with another windows (non_bootcamp) but either or were able to boot up bootcamp
