Really? When I try to install on a 10v I get Virtualization not supported error message. And according to Intel only the Z5xx Atom processors support Vitualization Technology. And Parallels tech support says:

"As already said hardware virtualization support in CPU is a mandatory requirement for our products for the Mac platform. All Mac models are currently shipped with that feature.

As for Intel Atom - all top models of the Intel Atom CPU have this technology (Z520/Z520PT/Z530/Z530P/Z540/Z550). Please refer to the http://ark.intel.com/VTList.aspx for details."

So how did you get Parallels to run on an A90, which I believe has the N270 Atom CPU?

I believe to get Parallels to run you have to find and install a 3.x version, which doesn't need VT support.

You're right, I happened to own 3.X actually, so that's probably why it worked. I prefer VMWare though, far more stable under Snow Leo in my experience.
