VMWare Server Crashes Vista

How to stop VMWare Server from crashing/Freezing Vista.

If you install VMWare Server 1.09 or below your computer will freeze up when you start your virtual machine. To fix that first go to

Host—Host Settings—Fit all host memory into reserved host ram.

The second thing you want to do is make sure your virtual machine has a low spec of memory, so I you have 2GB of ram, and vista is using 1GB, then use 512MB for you virtual machine.

Vista doesn’t play well with VMWare Server1.09 and below, to resolve that you could always upgrade to VMWare Server 2 and above. Although I have noticed VMWare Server 2 is wierd and difficult to use compare to version 1.

Another option is that you can run VMWare Server on XP. It runs much better and smoother. I wonder if this issue will be fixed in Windows 7

Vista Won’t Boot after Ghost

Apr 25, 2009 @ 10:24 am by HackingManual

I orginally discovered this problem after Ghosting my laptop to upgrade my hard drive.  It dispayed a white – and wouldn’t boot.

Solution: Pop in your vista recovery disk and do a start up repair. In the event that doesn’t do the trick.

Go to CMD line.

Type C:/

Bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot

and just restart your computer. This fixes the master boot record and allows your drive to boot.
