Slow initialization of VMs on Ryzen Threadripper 3960X

This post was originally published on this site


I’ve just moved from an Intel i7-6700K to an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and have noticed that the initial startup process is extremely slow (5-10min) once it’s started everything works fine and a reboot is as quick as before.


The same slow initialization happens when the VM is turned off or suspended, it takes 5-10min (extremely random) for the VM to get to the “Windows 10”-load screen.


Anyone having the same or similar issues or know a reason for this?


I’m running VMWare Workstation 15.5.1 and have attached the log.
