    Windows 10 VM - Horrible Performance

    sfarmer1 Novice

      I'm finally breaking down and asking for help as I've not been able to find the answer to this issue that I'm having.


      Environment Details:

      HP xw8600 Dual X5460 @ 3.16GHz

      ESXi 6.5.0 Update 1 (Build 5969303)

      64GB of RAM

      2TB RAID


      So the issue is solely with my Win10 Pro x64 VMs. These things are just outright slow as I'm thinking it has something to do with the latest U1 update to ESX. I've got Win7 VMs that are snappy without issues. I took one of my Win7 VMs and upgraded it to Win10 and that's when the problems arise. I've uninstalled the VMWare Tools... Nope, still bad. Re-installed, the tools. Nope, still bad. I even went on to install a dedicated SSD and copy this VM over to it to see if it would help. Nope, still bad.


      Win10 VM Specs

      CPU: 4 cores, 4 sockets, 1 Core per sockets

      RAM: 4GB

      Hard Drive: 60GB (thick provisioned) - SCSI controller

      Video Card: 4MB


      I'm thinking that this might be related to the U1 update but is there a fix? I'm out of ideas here.

      Thank you!
