    Parallels gave me a message while I was in Windows that my disk space was running low, click here to increase size.

    So I clicked. It warned me that it would have to restart Windows. Okay, I assumed it would do it correctly.

    Now Windows is stuck in a Startup Repair loop. Every time I start my VM, Windows Error Recovery pops up after a brief BSOD. Whether I Start Windows Normally, or Launch Startup Repair (Recommended) I can't get into Windows. Startup repair comes up, but then it says Windows Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

    This is Windows 7.

    Help!

    The virtual machine might be corrupted if you have a time machine back up then please restore the virtual machine by following steps in this article and check if you are able to start Windows virtual machine.

    I don't have a Time Machine backup. Any other options?

    And also, why would the VM be corrupted? I just did EXACTLY what Parallels told me to do. If that caused my VM to become corrupt, I would call that a very serious bug.
