Damn, that's a shame. It isn't much use if you can't trust the results.
However, you did get much further than I did.

I've given it a 30GB partition, although I don't want to install
bootcamp, so it is an expandable parallels disk image.

To be exact, the VM didn't crash as such, but when it restarts after the
install it just loads to a blank, black screen. No audio either.

Thanks for the response, I guess I will need a PC for some things after
all :-(

It's such a shame, it was the smoothest Windows install I'd ever had!

Kind regards,
