Hi, if I select either a REAL optical drive, or a VIRTUAL drive with a mounted image for Virtual PC to boot from, my REAL system automatically restarts when Virtual PC tries to boot. Nothing has ever automatically restarted this system before and "Automatically restart" is unticked under "System failure" in startup and recovery options. There is a similar option in the BIOS which is also disabled. There are no error messages or other indications. It is strange because it does the same thing with a real CD or an ISO on my hard drive mounted to a virtual drive, so it can't be a problem with the hardware.
I have obviously tried deleting/recreating the virtual hard disk, deleting/recreating the virtual machine, and uninstalling/reinstalling Virtual PC - no luck.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
