Hi There seems to be an issue with pGina and VCL. One of the reservation steps for Windows image is to auto-login user 'root' on 1st boot to configure SSHD service. Current version of pGina (18.104.22.168) doesn't support auto-login, so reservation fails.
I've contacted pGina developers about auto-login option - it will be added to the pGina 3.1 (next release, no due date). pGina 22.214.171.124 BETA doesn't have the auto-login option yet. Thanks.
