Same problem in Version 3.0.2 r49928 with Windows XP guest but Fedora 11 Linux host. Some additional observations that might help track it down:

  1. I have two XP guests, only one of which exhibits this problem. The one that fails was formerly a VMware Workstation 5.x guest (which didn't support USB 2.0) and runs XP Home. The one that works was formerly a physical machine which I converted to a virtual disk, then ran a full Windows recover-install on, and runs XP Professional.
  1. The failing machine successfully boots after a failed attempt when I select "last good configuration" on the Windows error screen. But then if I say Restart, it fails on the next boot. In other words, the following is repeatable: start, hang, reset, start, select "last good configuration", successful boot.
  1. The hang comes while the Windows splash screen is showing after the little moving bar has gone arount a dozen or more times, just before the time when the splash screen disappears on a successful boot. When it hangs, it consumes 100% of one processor on the host. (I haven't let it go for 2 hours as some other posters apparently have.)
  1. After disabling USB 2.0, the problem goes away and it boots fine.

(Sorry for the duplicate attachments; this is my first time using this ticket system and I don't know how to remove the duplicate.)
