The only problem with Parallels is that sometimes the USB ports don't have full functionality in Windows.

Did you try Bootcamp?

My suggestion would be to find a used PC/laptop to use specifically for that purpose, I know some BB users have done this, or find a friend with a PC who will let you use it to do an upgrade.

VMware Fusion is slightly more complicated to install, but it's the most robust solution short of getting a cheap pc laptop.
