    Hi,

    Did anyone experience this? I have to "start" my XP VM then it lockes, I press "Stop" and then "start" again, choose (in windows) startup normal, then it runs smoothly.....

    TIA

    Rene

    Imac Core Duo 20" 2gb, parallels 3188

    Always gracefully

    Hi Eru,

    Yes always gracefully, the problem started approx. 3 weeks ago before never any major problems with parallels. (started using from build 18XX, and always zapped old installations)

    SP2 and zapped

    Hi,

    Strange thing is that it "just happened". No changes to XP (with sp2) or to parallels (still 3188)

    So in my humble opinion it must have something to do with OSX. I did install X11 and an update for X11 and the gimp, after that the problem started.

    But I can live with it, probably next version of parallels will fix this.

    Strange... Very strange. Try un-installing X11 and the GIMP.
