Run VMWare client operating systems faster

By | December 4, 2008

If you find VMWare rather slow and would like to speed things a little bit, ad these lines to the .vmx file of your guest operating system:

sched.mem.pshare.enable = “FALSE”
prefvmx.useRecommendedLockedMemSize = “TRUE”
prefvmx.minVmMemPct = “100”
mainMem.partialLazySave = “FALSE”
mainMem.partialLazyRestore = “FALSE”
mainMem.useNamedFile = “FALSE”
