need to kill running winxp install

Jump to solution

Just installed vmfusion 2.0 and attempted to install winxp pro. got my cd keys mixed up, now winxp is in a running state during the install and in a loop that I can't seem to kill. I want to kill this install of winxp and start over with the correct cd and keys

suggestions?

thank you

I would just suspend the machine, then right click on it in the Virtual machine library, delete it (move to trash - don't forget to empty the trash afterwards since VMs can take a lot of space), and create a new XP VM (with the same name as the old, if you wish) and start again.
