Hi

With vmware 7.0 there was a checkbox to enable paravirtualization, now I am using vmware 8.0 and the option is missing,  I tried the vmware.com too, but before I had found a way to ask a question or search, it was half an hour later.

Is this option available in vmware 8.0, or not available and enabled at default or?

It has been retired.  Most likely reason is tha the functionality that it provided is not built into CPUs.
