    So, I've been debating getting Parelells as a companion to Boot Camp, so I downloaded the beta to give it a shot. So, I started up my boot camp partition in Paralells, and now it boots fine in Paralells (except, I can't use my mouse), but I only get a blank screen when I boot into Windows directly.

    This is an big issue, since I have a very important school project on my Boot Camp partition.

    mine did something similar, where it showed a blank screen... i just let it sit and it snapped out of it and continued to boot.

    If you can still see your boot camp partition while in OS X, you should be able to navigate to the folder and copy the files that you need.

    Also remember that you are working with BETA and EXPERIMENTAL software here, NEVER do something important without a backup.

    Nope, just sitting there with a blank screen.

    Is there a way I can make the screen come up that let's you boot from the last good configuration?
