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'"

    @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.
