Can no longer boot into Win 7 via Parallels on Mac OSX 10.7.3

Now I can only boot into Windows if I use safe mode with or without networking.  I was thinking to limit the number of things that launch at start but there's a lot in there.  Any recommendation on how to approach the startup problems?

If Mac OSX 10.8.3 is right you should ask Parallels if you can join their beta team. I am sure they are working on a Mountain Lion version.

Sorry - my fat finger.  10.7.3 I mean.

why pay for parallels when you can get a really good emulator free of charge >> https://www.virtualbox.org/  and you should be able to transfer your windows 7 VM to VBox

Yes - this is what worked msconfig.  I had to add services and programs to start gradually and eventually got a combination that loads.  Took a lot of time but finally got it.
