So i have a new Lenovo w510 laptop running a 320gb drive and I7 with 8 cores with win7 64bit ultimate loaded.
I have loaded the latest vmware workstation 7.1.4. the vm running ont he laptop is win7 ultimate 64bit. It has 2 cpu and 2gb of ram with a 35gb drive for the os.
when I run anything on the vm it hogs the drive and the host can't do anything. Just opening firefox causes the drive to hang for a 3-5secs till it opens.
Is there anything that I could do get this to preform better? I figured this laptop would preform alot better with all the power it has.
