So i have a Win 7 Ultimate x64 machine. I have installed VMware and download BT5 vmware image.
Upon unpacking the .zip file and booting up the image everything works fine. I can use all programs no problems. I can even power it down and suspend it. All fine.
But the moment i turn it back on(after rebooting or being switched off) i get the normal startup menu asking to enter username/password and a command to run(after). But when i enter "startx" for GUI bootup i get brought to a blackscreen. Fist time it happened i shut it down and rebooted. Still same thing. Rebooted my whole comp and still sma ething. But if i delete the image and unpackage it again. Boots up like a charm. The issue is after you shut down the VMware image and upon turning it back on you'll hit this issue.
