View Full Version : parallels problem

3rd March 2007, 07:29 AM
When I upgrade parallels, the VM (xp) goes black after startup. I can hear the login sound but no screen. It works fine in parallels one but when I upgraded to 3186 I get this problem.

Anyone else had it?
How can I fix it without doing another installation?

Start the Windows virtual machine in safe mode... does that work? Safe mode is done by tapping F8 before the splash screen..

If you can get it loaded that way, remove Parallels Tools from the XP Virtual machine and see if it will then reboot back into normal XP mode on its own. Then reapply the latest Parallels Tools package
