I'm running Vmware Server 2.0 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61, on Windows XP. Normally, VMs run fine on this setup, but I installed a Vista VM and it's running painfully slow. Too slow to even use. There's enough memory (1.5GB) allocated to the VM, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Any ideas? Is there a known issue that I've overlooked? Thanks in advance...
Verify whether your laptop supports hardware virtualization (check your BIOS). If not, Vista is going to be incredibly slow. Sometimes the setting exists in BIOS but is disabled.
