Parallels Destop 8 For Mac OS 10.8.1

Hi, I have been trying to install Parallels Desktop 8. When I chose Bootcamp Partion to install from; a failure in installation is induced. The Error reads as follows

"Error: PRL_ERR_DISK_READ_FAILED (0x80021029)
Path: '/Users/Simon/Documents/Parallels/Windows 7 1.pvm/TOSHIBA MK5055GSXF (disk0).hdd'"

I use Parallels Desktop 7 for MAC and when I installed it I didn't have to use the Bootcamp partition; I just installed it. Is the a reason you want to do that?

@october16: Until I saw your post I didn't know about the release of Parallels 8. I just upgraded to it and again had no problems installing it by just double-clicking the dmg file.

who uses parallels when you can have something similar like VirtualBox for free and as good.
