    I've been successfully running Windows XP on my MacBook Air for a few months. However, for the second time, my Windows XP Virtual machine has disappeared as if I never installed it. I recently ran a suggested Apple OS update. Could that be resetting VM and causing it to wipe out my VM? The install process takes 50-60 minutes so it's more than annoying.

    Although I have been using VMW Fusion + XP in my MBA for only a month, what you described never happened to me. (I have all recommended OS X updates installed too).

    Which version of Fusion do you have? I have 1.1.1 first, and it's now updated to 1.1.2. You may want to re-install Fusion to 1.1.2, in additional to just re-install the XP virtual machine.

    I may also be a good idea to backup your XP virtual machine folder to spare you from sitting through the install again.
