How can I find C:\ and retrieve Windows files from Parallels

by chris4819 - 10/19/10 2:46 AM

How can I find C:\ and retrieve Windows files from Parallels on a Mac?
Friday, 15 days before, I worked in Windows 7 using Parellels 5 on a Mac (Snow Leopard) desktop computer.
I don?t know what happened, but when next Monday I tried to get into Windows, I couldn?t do it. It gives the ?setup is starting?? on the Windows 7 wallpaper, and in the taskbar says that Parallels tools are not installed.
When I try to install the Parallel Tools I have to put some GB on the HDD, which is 64 GB, but I?m afraid that perhaps I lose some data, even if I don?t know for the time being, where is located this data.
Can somebody tell me where is my C:\ disk? And how I can find all my Windows partition, to copy what I don?t like to lose? Please!
I tried to put a new VM, with a new version of Windows 7 and as key I wrote xxxxx.xxxx?., and on the Windows desktop opens a window where is: ?The unattend answer file contains an invalid product key. Either remove the invalid key or provide a valid product key in the unattend answer file to proceed with Windows installation.?
I don?t know where these files are to change them. Also the old VM, does not open, and gives the same ?unattend answer? error.
iMac configuration :
21.5-inch: 3.06GHz
1920-by-1080 resolution
4GB (two 2GB) memory
500GB hard drive
8x double-layer SuperDrive
ATI Radeon HD 4670 with 256MB

Please Help.?Thank You.
Chris
