using the iso. the amd64 4.0 iso. parallels is fully up to date.

I don't believe I have an encrypted home.

the 4.0 i386 is working fine for me now in parallels.

the amd64 iso installed into rEFIt, but now won't boot with missing kbd at boot
time. NFI how that works (it sees the keyboard when you run from the CD, I guess
something about MBR/BIOS-fakery differs when it comes of the CD, and via rEFIt
post install)

any more clue greatfully received!!
