Windows 10 Pro 1909 - System process(ntoskrnl) taking 100% disk when VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.1 is launched

Hi,

Recently I am having issues with VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.1. System process(ntoskrnl) is taking 100% disk when VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.1 is launched with any Guest OS(I am using CentOS 8.1.1911) and VM's are hung when I shutdown them.

I am using VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.1 on Windows 10 Pro 1909.

Could anyone please help?

Hi,

Sounds like an incompatibility issue, but the official document: "VMware Knowledge Base " states that the "Windows 10 19H2 insider build" version that would be 1909 is compatible with Vmware Worstation Pro 15.5
