ESXi running Netware 5.1 hits 100% CPU before more cycles added

Hi, I am trying to run a Netware 5.1 SP8 server on an ESXi3.5 system. VMWare tools is installed. When you start to put load onto the Client, its utilisation starts to rise (ofcourse), but it gets to 100% for upto 30 seconds before ESXi assigns it more cycles from the processor, therefore the applications that are trying to access data from the Client OS hang and may disconnect due to timeouts.

There is only that one Client running on the system. It has a single dual core processor.

Is there a way of either fixing the CPU cycles assigned to this client or of forcing the reallocation at an earlier stage?
