New Machine - Multilingual Power Button of Doom

Well the Marble of Doom has some knock-on effects. The Parallels Windows session was up when the Marble rolled by and all I can say is that the VM image must be corrupt because when you try to re-start it you get the following "Multilingual Power Button of Doom".

The lesson is to back-up your VM's often. They certainly take a long time to create you might as well invest in the disk to back them up.

Don't know for sure, but it may be possible that you could just set up a new VM using a copy of the virtual disk from the fubar one. Might save you some install time.
