    Ok, I got my diskimage from a VPC6 installation of windows 2000 pro
    I got the .vhd image from clicking "show package contents" from the image
    I ran transporter agent, but when I boot it and see the b&w progress bar then the w2k color start up screen, then it blue screens on me and immediately shuts. Safemode does not help.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry, I can't help. But I am experiencing the exact same thing. No help from tech support either. They simply don't respond.

    I'm beginning to suspect that Parallels cannot use VirtualPC images. I've found no evidence that anyone's actually been able to make it work.

    Same problem

    I did exactly the same thing as you did

    Transporter seems to work fine, no error problem, it did migrate the base.vhd.

    could it be the modification to the system files when transporter ask you if you want to "boot from it " ?

    Sure it found the necessary files because it never ask for an installation disk !!!

    because the error we get on that blue screen, seems to be a driver problem.

    I'm having the exact same problem, now a year later. I've searched the forums and knowledge base, but haven't found anything useful. Has anyone managed to find a solution yet?
