basically, upon waking my macbook pro from sleep, parallels went a bit screwy and the VM i was running at the time became non responsive and just crashed. then when i asked parallels to stop the VM that crashed too. i had to force quit everything upon re loading the VM all that happens is you get the boot screen, then the menu asking if you like to start XP in safe mode because it wasnt shut down proper and then the XP splash screen comes on for about 1 second before it BSOD's and reboots. for some reason parallels wont boot from CD, even though i asked it too, so trying to repair windows from the disc seems out of the question am i out of luck here then? will i just have to start a fresh? (good thing i can still access the files n stuff with the VM explorer), guess i should make use of the snap shot button in future.
