    I would'nt care if just the VM crashes - hey, there is Windows inside ;-) But that the whole Mac OS X is restarting without any warning or log entry, that's really bad!

    Must be a problem with the Parallels kernel extensions. A normal application process could not crash the whole Mac OS X that way - as far as I know.

    Us to !!!

    We have had to upgrade to Parallels 6 in order to run Lion but since upgrading my Mac now randomly restarts itself - it has happened almost every other day !! This is a VM that I upgraded to P6 from P5 and P5 never suffered from this problem.

    What are Parallels doing about this - its very annoying that you buy software (well forced to upgrade) to run a virtualised environment just to have it also crash the host OS - so not only do I loose everything I was working on in Windows, but everything in Mac as well !!!!


    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX

    Random boot

    This is also happening with me once I leave parallels open. I have Parallels 6 and Windows 7.

    Parallels 7 + Lion is fine

    Just to note: I did update to Lion and Parallels 7 since a while and do not have any of this issues anymore!
