I got VMware on my laptop, I installed Ubuntu and Windows 8 unto it, but it runs really slowly. I increased the RAM for both OS but still no improvements.

How can I make it start-up faster and run smoother?

  • OS: Widows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

  • RAM: 4 GB

  • HDD: 500GB

Windows configUbuntu Config

    how about posting your basic data like: CPU, RAM, RAM dedicated to VMs, are you using SSD/HDD, specifics of your VM-setup and your Laptop would greatly help to narrow down the cause ;) – Jook Oct 30 '12 at 12:41

Probably, you have to specify the virtualization engine in Hardware -> 'Processor' and enable VT technologies in Bios
