I would think it is just a problem with the parallels USB implementation and you just got lucky with that one, have a look at the Mac support thread and see if there is a better host or anything else that may help.

I and others have found an intermittent pulse in using a guest OS (parallels, Virtualbox, VMware).  So far it looks like 8 of 10 flashes will work, put it will occasionally crash mid firmware flash.  In my case, I needed a windows system to resurrect it.

I am still using Virtualbox for settings adjustment, but will only flash with a PC now.  I hope there is a mac version one day....
