Any progress on this Workstation performance issue? Its been a couple weeks since the last reply to this thread.
I am running Workstation 15.5.6 build-16341506....on Windows 10 2004. I have installed WSL 2 on the host, however both WSL2 and Hyper V are both disabled.
All of my VM guest OS's are pretty unusable. CPU in the guest stays at 100% with memory at 50% no matter how many processors I add.
And when the CPU does goes below 100% (although rarely), running any application or doing anything (opening a browser, or file folder, etc.) sends it back to 100%. (And yes, I am only running one guest at a time.) Before WS 15.5.6 I did not have any issues with these VM guest environments.
Should I roll back to a workstation version prior to 15.5.5?
I have tried a few workarounds from this thread but have not see any improvement.
@GregF4 For me advice with BcdEdit helped.
Workstation 16 is out. Anyone have tested it for this perfomance hit and ability to run WSL and VW without turning off Hyper-V?
Also affected by this, 15.5.6 with a Windows 10 UEFI VM.
Since updating to 2004 and 15.5.6 and enabling the Windows Hypervisor based mode, performance is terrible.
Feels like the VM is running via RDP from the moon - I can't do my work any more in the VM to be honest.
