comment What could cause Vista machines to degrade in performance?
if you swap a hard disk from a "good" machine and put into the specific subset of machines, would the problem follow the harddisk or the machine?

Another thought, have you tried hooking up a USB keyboard?

We had a very similar problem, CHKDSK would run at every boot. Eventually, we let it run overnight, and i think it gets past the initial setup or initial analysis and then will let you stop it from the keyboard. How long are you waiting?

comment xp mode in Windows 7 - capture mouse?
just to be clear, when you're opening the vmcx, you see a start menu, desktop, and everything else for an XP machine? You might have to restart the virtual machine to get rid of the integration features. I don't understand what could be preventing the virtual machine itself from running full screen.

comment Windows 7: Search indexing is stuck
@Nifle - yes, it would also be a reasonble investigation to reduce the number of folders indexed. Under the start menu, type "indexing" and click on indexing options. That panel lists the locations you are indexing.

yes, very good idea to ensure the basics are working right. Also check the event log for system errors.
