    Hi all, after an absence of 18 months or so, i decided to reinstall Parallels again.

    All went well, installed Vista, opened up Vista, ran well for two or three times.

    This morning I awoke the Mac from sleep and fired up Parallels. The initial screen stated up but on clicking the green start button, I just get the rainbow Mac circling ball, after some minutes I still had this and had to force a shut down.

    This was all repeated several times, to no avail!

    Mine is an older build, but it checked for an update on start up yesterday.

    Any thoughts before i trash it?

    Just to add that in checking I have Parallels Desktop 2.5 Build 3188, could this version have any relevance to my issue?

    which mac OS?

    10.4.11 0r 10.5.*
    need build 5584 or higher for all the bug fixes

    personally I shall not get Vista yet
    but stay with WinXp sp 2

    I have used Parallels every day for nearly two years and am very happy with it
