Kernel panic when upgrading my VM HD to v.3.0 in Mac OS X 10.4.10

    I'm a registered user of the full version of Parallels Desktop v.3, in the process of upgrading from v.2.5. When the program attempted to update my virtual machine's hard drive just now so it would be compatible with v.3, it caused a kernel panic. I am running Mac OS X 10.4.10, which I installed via the standalone combo updater this morning without incident -- well, except for this. :^/

    I rebooted my MacBook Pro and relaunched Parallels Desktop 3.0 just now, and it said it could not start because my VM was unreadable. Ouch.

    Thank goodness I had a full backup of the VM, which I am restoring now.

    Is the VM HD upgrade process incompatible with Mac OS X 10.4.10? I realize it's brand new, but if anyone at Parallels or elsewhere can shed any light on this situation, I'd be grateful.

    It's not just you - I've been getting Kernel Panics all day as well after updating to 10.4.10.

    However I already had been using 3.0 4128 for some time beforehand with only a few problems. I won't say none - it appears less stable than latter 2.5 builds. However I haven't seen anything like this before the system update.

    I believe that some of the Parallels kernel extensions are conflicting with the new Apple kernel / extensions. I am in the process of uninstalling Parallels right now and reinstalling, following the process here:

    For me the problem usually beings to manifest with SystemUIServer running away, eventually causing all sorts of system instability and crashes, finally resulting in kernel panic.

    Well, second time's the charm: I was able to get my Win XP HD to update, and I'm using it now with v.3. I still can't print anything but the simplest documents, though. It's especially frustrating because Virtual PC never had any problems printing, even going back to its earliest versions. (One of the few things it did well!)

    I'm still leery, as I hadn't seen a kernel panic in years until today, but at least I can get some work done tomorrow. Curse DoubleClick and its PC-only web applications....

    If those connected with Parallels learn anything more about 10.4.10 compatibility, I'd be grateful if they'd post it here.

    The 10.4.10 update introduced problems for both Parallels and Fusion and has been discussed and is in now the KB and is a sticky note, too. Parallels is going to release a fix RSN (real soon now). Fusion's fix is already available. Expect leap frogging as Leopard gets closer - the applications will catch up, Leopard will leop ahead, applications will catch up again. Nothing new here, of course, but it sure is frustrating when it goes very many cycles.
