    I installed XP pro on my VP. It went through the setup proces and booted
    into the OS a couple of times during that process. It did not seem to shut
    down properly during the last part of setup. It will now boot (i get the XP
    Pro logo) and when it should give me my login screen it goes to a black
    screen. It will boot into safe mode. Any ideas before I spend a couple of
    hours trying to diagnose?

  2. Is your XP Pro a cd or an .iso file? Is it from an MSDN dvd? Is it from an
    OEM's restore set? Is it a "copy"?
    It is not difficult to delete the .vhd file and do another installation.
    That is one of the beauties of VPC.
