    Help! - Boot Camp Vista x64 suddenly won't boot
    Hi all,

    I'm new to Mac and recently took the plunge getting a MBP 2.4Ghz 4GB RAM running OS X which I've set-up with Boot Camp and VM Ware Fusion running Vista x64

    It been running great for a month now and I've booted into both OS's with no problems at all.

    Suddenly this morning when I boot into Vista I get a black screen - nothing.

    When I boot into OS X I can run VM Ware Fusion and the run the boot camp partition within that no problems at all. I have tried restoring Vista (which it successfully did back to midday yesterday - when it was running fine).

    This is a major problem for me as I need to run Vista on boot camp urgently for work

    any ideas where I can start troubleshooting this?

    Thanks
    Justin

    I have managed to resolve this. Having scoured many threads across several forums it seems to be a fairly common problem which many have been unable to resolve.

    I read one post which suggested that letting the power drain and restart had solved it.

    I just removed the battery, replaced it and Boot Camp came back allowing me to boot Vista again
