After the current version seemed to perform very well, I decided to try booting from Boot Camp. Suprise, it installs the tools on its own. I leave it alone. SUPRISE! It hangs. Suprise, on rebooting a second time it does it again. When rebooting into Boot Camp, the system BSODs on the chime at login. Safe boot does ok, but you cannot work that way. Restoring the registry to last good config does not change the situation. When I boot into my virtual partition with Boot Camp as D:, it does not look like tools are installed. But it sure looks like there is a bad driver some place. I cannot find any docs on what gets installed, and there is no removal tool in Add Remove, because of the freeze. I suspect, since there is ZERO support even on the boards, this whole thing is a secret, and I have to reinstall. But I have a faint hope, somebody might have a list of what gets installed where, and what registry items are tweaked. This would not be hard to document. Most of my R&D group and all our servers are on VMWare, I can see that with this experience it will not change.... PS designing this sort of thing to run "behind the scenes" withhout ability of user intervention or information is irresponsible engineering.
