    Reinstalling Windows 8 in Parallels.

    I've corrupted my Windows 8 updates in Parallels and get nothing but the black screen of death come up.

    I can't repair itas I can't swap the boot up option to CD/DVD. My next step is to just uninstall and install Windows 8.

    I've backed up but is there anything to do before I hit the uninstall button?

    I don't know if you have already started, but in Parallels there is an option to set your boot disc. Linky

      The only important thing I can think of is back-ups. If you have no use in backing up, recover more data, because you already have everything backed up (kudos), then you should be fine just reinstalling.

          Oh, yes I did thanks Netraider. I gave up in the end and just removed the VM and installed another one.

          A bit of a pain but it gave me a clean sheet to work with.

            Did you totally remove the VM? There is a way to mount virtual drives from old VMs into new ones.
