    VMware ESXI 6.5, Windows 10 disk usage issue

    SurferL Novice



      I am trying to get Windows 10 Pro N working on our VMware instance however am having a few issues with disk usage throttling at "100%" (~2.5MB/s - ~5MB/s) with barely anything running.


      The "top" usage of disk usage according to Task Manager is usually "System" and when opening file location, it points to ntoskrnl.exe.


      Things I've tried:


      Details of our VMware instance:

      • Hypervisor: VMware ESXI 6.5 5310538
      • Model: PowerEdge R730
      • Proc Type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v4 @ 3.20GHz


      I'm not really sure how else to proceed to fix this issue. Would upgrading to ESXI 6.7 help?


      NB, I do not have any issues with using Windows 7, only Windows 10 it seems.
