VMWare with Ubuntu 64-bit as guest on Windows 7

VMWare with Ubuntu 64-bit as guest on Windows 7


I have tried VMWare Player 3.x with Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit as guest OS on Windows 7. But I could not

shut down the Windows 7 system!!! The disk access just cycled ... so I had to use the power tab!!

I took away the VMWare Player/Ubuntu and than Windows 7 behaves "normal".

I was forced to put Ubunty on a partition and configure for a dual boot and this works brilliant!

Anyone else with this "shutdown" eternity problem?
