    VMWare users - NVMe now supported


    Hi folks
    when creating a VM using latest release of VMWare - especially if creating it on an SSD you can now select NVMe as HDD type -- this does work considerably better than the standard SCSI HDD standard controller which was the old default for virtual disks -- even if you don't have any NVMe disks installed.

    One of the problems with things like VMWare has always been the I/O performance of having to use paravirtualised I/O rather than the native file system of the Guest OS itself. However this does speed it up quite a bit.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

  3. Windows 10 installer don't detect NVMe drive

    Thanks. This helped but only partly.

    NVMe disk is now listed in choose-disk step but installer says that its unable to install WIndows on this disk because it has MBR partition. Windows can only be installed on GPT disks in EFI systems.

    What should i do now ?

    Use bootloader from a SATA disk to boot Windows installation on a NVME disk

    I've managed to get the system booting from the NVME some other way:

    1. Converted the NVME to GPT using MBR2GPT.EXE
    2. Hacked NVME support into the bios
