Have Suse 10.0 as host and WinXP as Guest. I was installing EPD2004, an engineering cad program. When it install the flexlm driver, WinXP crashed, that is, went away completely. When I start the VM again, gets to where the windows desktop is shown, then promptly crashes again. Set the network not to connect at startup, and it takes a little longer. If I can get taskmanager to going and kill the last two svhost.exe process in addition to a java process, it will last long enough to the the control panel open to adminstrative tools, services. I see nothing there unusual. Then it will crash again. Is there any way to get WinXP into safe mode or some other action so it does not crash so I can look at the registry, etc and remove all of the entries and environment variables for what was being installed? Any other way to find out what is going on or do I start all over again, which I do not relish doing (took 2 days to get where I was before the crash). This cad program is one of two that I need that only runs in windows. Otherwise I would forget windows completely.
