    I have installed new CentOS/RHEL/Fedora virtual machine, but I can't install Parallels Tools because of issue with kernel sources. does OS get any control at all? E.g. do I see the bootloader screen? If yes, then the issue is with the startup sequence. I usually enter the bootloader and try to boot the minimal version of the OS (e.g. on Linux it would be passing "init=/bin/bash" to the kernel command line). Reboot the VM again into the new kernel, everything should work. Can now reset Grub2 to use the first kernel listed (grub2-set-default 0), unmount the Tools image, and delete the tools_cd directory as cleanup, if needed. omegleshagle
    Thanks
