Vista 5342 build on vmware





mrblah
Does anybody have any tips for speeding up vista in VMware? I have a Sun ultra 20 Workstation with 2 gigs of ram. 1 gig of it is for Vista. Vista is really clunky as a guest OS compared to XP.

lol, speed up vista. Vista requires High amounts of cpu power it just isn't going to happen. Unless your cpu is 1ghz or higher this isn't going to happen.

Well the cpu is a 1.4 Ghz 64bit Opteron. I shut off Windows defenser and mssearch(??) and it seems usable now.

make sure iTunes or Azureus arent running in the background. these have higher cpu usages.

I will tell you this real quick because it is off topic.

Instead of closing from the from the red circle in x or gray box in classic
Go up to the menu and Where is sayz itune in the menu click it and then click quit. Otherwise the program will keep running. or you can push 'Apple' "q". if you need more help that is off topic please pm not post

EDIT: crap should have taken my own advise well. Here is a screen shot I made.
