Can’t install Windows 7 on VMware - freezes on boot


Since yesterday I have a problem installing Windows 7 on VMware. It installs normally and after reboot it freezes to boot "Starting Windows" and nothing happens. Everything was fine before. On VirtualBox installs and boots without problem, but there are graphical artifacts when Aero enabled. Virtualization is enabled in UEFI.

In attachments are specs of host system. I tried even reinstalling the host system - Windows 11 64-bit. VMware Workstation Pro 17.

VM Specs:

16 GB RAM, 12 CPU threads

How to fix this problem?
