    Yesterday I got the message that my VM HD can be compressed due to free space which I declined and wanted to start normally - but then the error window "Virtual harddrive 1 is damaged... please check it for errors" and the link to the KB 113241. I did the prl_disk_tool without any errors. But not I've got the problem that my VM won't start anymore: It stuck's after "Trying to boot from Primary Master IDE drive" dialogue. Parallels process uses 100% processor but no HD activity within the VM HD LED icon. I left it 2-3 hours in that state yesterday without any progress. Ideas?

    Thanks & Regards, Frank
