    Hello, I recently purchased Parallels 7 for Mac. I converted the XP image from VirtualBox, and it works fine.
    However, I have an issue when shutting down windows XP - the final screen with "Windows is shutting down" message hangs forever.

    Guest OS: XP
    Host OS: Lion

    I appreciate any help.

    Thanks

    A Windows XP shutdown hang is typically related to a device driver that is misbehaving. There is a good article on troubleshooting XP shutdown issues here: http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php

    I am assuming you've installed Parallels tools for XP? You might also want to make sure XP is patched.
