After MacOS 10.15.7 Update, Fusion 11.5.6 slow to boot to desktop

Using Fusion 11.5.6.


Just updated iMac Pro to MacOS 10.15.7.  Fusion is now exhibiting slow boot to desktop times for Windows Server 2008 R2…  Below are a sequence of snap shots of the boot process spanning over 2 minutes.  Start appears normal, but screen goes gray to black and stays black for upwards of 2 minutes, before normal boot to desktop.


This behavior is exhibited for Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual machines only.  Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 boot times are normal.


Anyone have any ideas what may be causing this issue?  Prior to 10.15.7 update, boot times were immediate.
