After total shutdown and restart of my iMac with VMware installed, I start VMware and it starts loading Windows XP Pro and then hangs in the middle of the Windows loading process. The cursor disappears. Repeated clicks on control-command keys will recover the cursor but it can only be used to close VMware. I can't find any means to continue or complete the Windows loading. Any suggestions?

Did it EVER work?

Try starting XP in safe mode and see how it behaves (ie: does it load?).

If it loads then you know it's (probably) a driver issue.

Yes, it did work. Thank you for your help. I just wonder if I will run into this problem every time I shut down completely and have to reboot Windows XP. –  Martin Overstreet Mar 26 '11 at 0:47
