Win7 on floppy

I found a bug while installing Windows 7 in Parallels 5 this morning.  Windows installer stops and says only "There are no images available", and I could not see any way past this screen.  So I went crawling around trying to figure this out.  It seems a few folks have run into this kind of thing before with systems other than Parallels.

The solution in my case was to disable the virtual floppy drive by unchecking "Configure/Hardware/Floppy Disk/Connected".  This is a MacBook and I don't have a floppy drive, and if I did there would certainly no Windows 7 images there.
