    After installing Returnil on a new machine and activating Virtual Mode, Windows 7 hangs at "Starting Windows". (The Windows logo continues moving, but hard disk activity stops.)
    This happens with the newest (14) as well as an older (13) version of rss 2011.

    Removing Returnil returns Windows 7 to normal operation.

    Via Last Known Good Configuration, Windows can be entered -and- Returnil will work as if there is no problem at all.

    Is there a list of known issues and incompatibilities?

    25GB Partition, 13GB in use, no pagefile. Windows 7 (U) 32bit

    Hi MadMonkey,
    Can you shoot an e-mail to the support address (support [dash] tech [at] returnil [dot] com) so we can work with you to get the logs we need to investigate your situation further?

    Though Returnil seemed the obvious cause, it now seems more likely there is an underlying problem with either hardware, or something at the system level.

    Please delete this post.

    Thank you for your time.

    Hi MM,
    I would prefer to keep the thread open and get your feedback once you have completed investigating your potential hardware issue. It would be helpful for others who might run into a similar problem and having an example of the cause and solution would be greatly appreciated for reference.
