Workstation 16 (W10 VM/Guest) - Slow startup & disk usage

Workstation 16 (W10 VM/Guest)

OS disk (drive C) is mechanical and Apps & VMs are located an SSD.

Windows VM can take up to 1.5 minutes to get to the desktop.

I noticed that the OS disk spikes to 100% usage when I boot a VM even though both Workstation and the VMs are on a separate disk (SSD; which barely spikes).

Workstation was originally installed on OS disk but I decided to move it to the SSD, but I still see the OS disk spoking when I boot the VM.

How much RAM do you have on the host, and how much is assigned to the VM? This sounds like it's swapping for some reason…
