just trying VPC2007 for first time. able to start the VM and boot from\nAcronis cd, network and install a "recovery". reset the machine and I can\nget to the B&W windows apolgizes for not starting... offers safemode, etc.\nbut choose any, and after mup.sys, goes black and stays black. could it be\nthe ATI graphics card in the host? never get to see XP, not even in safe.\n\nany thoughts?\n\ntoo bad b/c I would like to use the builds I have in our company PCs without\nkeeping one of every model/build in my office. but this is worthless.\n\n"simple" apps, like partition magic and acronis rung fine from CD- jsut\ncan'tget XP running like this.\n\nhave to try an install cd to prove it, I guess. but that isn't my build,\nand loses soem purpose.
