If this command returns anything like /dev/cdrom on /media/cdrom type iso9660 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,uid=0) with the noexecoption present in parentheses, you need to unmount the disc using the following command and then proceed to the next step: umount /dev/cdrom 5To mount the Parallels Tools installation disc image, enter the following: mount -o exec /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom Note:/dev/cdromis the virtual machine's CD/DVD drive and /media/cdromis the mount point for this device. In some of the Linux operating systems the virtual CD/DVD drive may appear as /dev/hdband the mount point /mnt/cdrom. Some Linux OSs do not have the CD/DVD drive mount point. In this case, you should create the mount point directory manually. 6When the installation disc image is mounted, change the directory to the CD/DVD drive directory using cd /media/cdrom/

To edit the settings of Parallels Tools installed in your virtual machine, use the Optionstab in the Virtual Machine Configurationdialog. How to check if Parallels Tools have been installed You can easily confirm whether Parallels Tools were installed. Start your virtual machine and look at the status bar of its window. If the tip "Press Ctrl + Alt to release the mouse and keyboard" appears in the status bar of the virtual machine's window, this means that Parallels Tools were not installed.
