This is odd in my option has anyone ever seen this.

The way I found this was I turned on the VM and then forced shutdown as it was logging in.

A cool Whistler reference to.

It can be seen if you log off normally, if I recall.
I would write some funny comment down here, but I can't be bothered. :P

I see this message commonly when shut downing on Windows Whistler (beta XP).
Windows 7's end support is on January 14, 2020! It's time upgrade to Windows 10! Windows 8.1 also is supported but not Windows 8!

Hi, BetaTester954 here on my new account.
This is also another way i got it to do the please wait thing.
Here's how, just limit the ram on the VM and as it logs in press Ctrl alt delete task manager with come up go to the shutdown drop menu and click restart when the end program box comes up click end now.

Apologize for the link under the image couldn't get rid of it for what ever reason.

I could not get this working on XP Pro x64 SP2. I'll try on a 32bit XP machine later.

Really cool though.
