Not sure if this has been answered in another thread but i have been having serious performance issues with running an XP VM in VMware fusion on the latest Snow Leopard version. I upgraded the SL to the latest version and also upgraded VMWare Fusion to V3. I am still getting a slow response from my XP VM. Really strange as this was running perfectly fine before the SL upgrade. Bit confused, and about to start a defrag (however long that may take) on the XP VM. If anyone has an ideas, I would greatly appreciate a response.
Taken from OP's answer to this question
Ok I ran defrag, and updated the spotlight settings toignore the VM folders, and seems to be a little quicker however apart from freeing up a serious amount of space(yay!) its not as quick as before the Snow Leopard upgrade.
I running the VM with 1 Processor and 1024 Mb Memory.
Is it worth backing up my data and rebuilding my OSX nd then reinstall fusion 3? If i reinstalling, should install Leopard firstand then run the upgrade, or can i just run the SL disk alone.
