    I upgraded to build 3094 and restarted my Mac Pro (2 x 2.66GHz Xeon, 4GB) and have the following problem with Vista RC1 build 5744. Upon attempting to upgrade Parallels Tools (using XPSP2 compatibility mode and Run As Administrator checked), after the InstallShield portion launches, I get a BSOD:

    *** STOP: 0x0000011B (0x85062E78, 0x893B5FA4, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    *** pcitg.sys - Address 893B5FA4 base at 893B5000, Datestamp 456fe2c8

    In fact, this is also the BSOD I now receive upon shutting down the VM. It's just that now it also happens with this new scenario. Any insights?

    Ummm... Vista RC1 is pretty seriously obsolete beta code at this point, so I imagine that the Parallels folks aren't going to take the time away from other things to support this. Maybe upgrading Vista would be a useful path (if you really need Vista). If the current tools support Vista, it will be the shipping version, not a beta, I'd think.
