VMware – Convoluted Guest Freeze Fix… — 2 Comments

  1. One thing that’s bugged me for years is the guest (CentOS7) would start running at 100% CPU at random times. Both the guest and host performance would go to hell. I’d added the parms you suggested but no joy. The fix for me was to create a desktop icon with the start command as

    vblank_mode=0 vmplayer /home/jojo/vmware/CentOS7.2/CentOS\ 7.2.vmx

    • I had found that previous ‘solutions’ worked for others, but not for me..
      Thanks for the additional fix info – I’ll try that if my ‘guest’ slows down again..
