An easier way of installing Nevada in Parallels on Mac OS X

As you might have seen from the Installing Nevada in Parallels on Mac OS X blog entry, it required a lot of tinkering to get Nevada installed in Parallels. I've found an easier way to do it!

When you boot Parallels using your Nevada DVD image, immediately hit the "e" key when the grub menu appears, then hit "e" again to edit the boot command. Add ",atapi-cd-dma-enabled=0" to the end of the line, so it reads

kernel /boot/multiboot kernel/unix -B install_media=cdrom,atapi-cd-dma-enabled=0

Then hit return to save it and the "b" key to boot using the new option.
