    So I was at work today running the Adobe CS3 Master Collection through Parallels just fine in Coherence mode, I shut the windows side down, closed the program and then placed my MacBook Pro into sleep.

    I woke it up a few hours ago and tried to run parallels, but it kept blue screening.
    So I tried to boot into Vista via bootcamp, same problem.

    I placed the Windows vista disk in and tried to let it auto repair the boot problem and it kinda did.
    Now in bootcamp, I get as far as when the mouse appears shortly before it makes the little boot up sound and flashes the windows glowy thing and then it does nothing, it sits there, forever with the mouse, nothing else.

    In Parallels I get the following screen. PS: Yes, im running the latest version of parallels.

    Normally I would just re-install but im hoping that I don't have to.
    I know im kind of barking up the wrong tree here, but im hoping to find a few windows nuts or at least know if this is common using parallels and if there is a fix.

    Hmm, I bet you have a bad stick of RAM... Does OS X have a memory test? If so, run it. I would also boot to the Vista CD and run the windows memory diagnostic...

    Nope :/
    I ran a full test with the windows and the TechTools OS X package.

    Both DIMMs came up clean.

    Forgive me if you've tried, but can you get into Safe Mode? Not sure how Parallels works but normally that'd be F8 at start-up.

    If you can get in there then you know it's a driver issue of some sort.
