Sitting Here Chewing on My New Apple Trying to squeeze Windows into it

Howdy!

I got my new little Air Book about a month ago.

After reading about Parallels I bought it and installed it on my Airbook.

Now I am sitting here with my Windows XP disc, trying to figure out how to squeeze the discs into the machine.

O.K. I give up. How do I get XP into my machine?

Thanks! :)

What do you mean by
squeeze the discs into the machine
?

Do you mean not enough HD space? Not enough RAM? Did you read the manual that came with Parallels? Are you trying to install an upgrade of XP?

He, he. Can't find the CD drive, huh? You're going to have to pony up a few bucks to get an external superdrive.

Jimbeetle nailed it. :)
@travelin cat, sorry for my stupid attempt at humor. :)

@jimbeetle (yep)

This may sound stupid but,
If you have something on disc, the way to get it into an Airbook is through an external drive connected through the USB port? or is their a wifi solution?

What drives do you guys recommend?

Missed the obvious Purposeinc, sorry about that.

I guess 6 am on a Sunday isn't the best time to try and answer posts.

Presuming that you have some sort of home network, you should be able to put the CD into the CD drive of another computer on your network and set up the CD drive as a shared folder. This will allow access to the CD from most if not all of the machines on your network.

@jezra, Thanks!

If I connect the CD Rom directly to the Mac, will any CD player work, or does it need to be Apple?

It does not have to be an Apple player. Also, check to make sure that XP is on a CD, not a DVD.
