Windows 7 virtual machine encrypted with the McAfee Drive Encryption software starts with a following error:
1. Shut down the virtual machine by clicking the top Mac menu Actions tab > Shut Down. If it the button is grayed out or doesn't react, click Actions > Stop. In case nothing helps to shut down Windows, try terminating the virtual machine process but don't just close the virtual machine window - this way Windows will switch to sleep mode and you won't be able to change the virtual machine configuration.
If Mac doesn't react to anything within 10-15 minutes, hard reset it.
2. Open virtual machine's configuration > Hardware tab > Hard Disk > expand "Advanced Settings" and change the location from SATA to IDE (use the same port, e.g. if you have SATA 0:1 change it to IDE 0:1).
