    Hi,

    I am having trouble booting up my windows 7 bootcamp, whenever i try to bootup it would give me some screen right after the windows logo and it'll say to repair or somthing, is this a common problem?

    If it helps my windows 7 is genuine professional and is the upgrade version.

    Did you change the size of your partition?

    Anyway, you can try this... go to this path and delete a folder...
    /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp

    Delete that Boot Camp folder... that is the trick to getting Fusion to read your new partition

    Once you delete that folder... boot into Boot Camp natively... then boot back to OSX... and then run Fusion

    It should initialize your Boot Camp partition and read it now

    I will try it next week when I get my mac back, but what do you mean change the size of my bootcamp partition? You mean change it in the vmware? I split the partition 50/50 between my MAC OSX and windows 7 if thats what you mean and I have a 500GB HD

    Sometimes if you change the size of your Bootcamp partition, then Fusion wants to read the old one and does not recognize the new one
