Windows 7 performance on VMware fusion 3…
For some strange reason it seemed to make a significant performance difference when “3d support” is enabled while actually not using aqua 3d user interface on windows 7. Settings that seem to be working well: only (!) 1024 MB of RAM, and 3D support DISABLED.
1) Disable 3D
2) Disable Indexing for whole C: drive
3) Disable System restore and use VMWare Snapshots instead
4) Disable the Windows logo during boot: http://www.technixupdate.com/disable-do-not-show-boot-screen-logo-while-booting-in-windows-7/
