VMware crashing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Whenever I'd try to start a vm, let's say Ubuntu, it gets to the desktop, sure, but when I try to interact with it, VMware crashes. Some said it was because of the 860 evo that I have, but the same happens on an A400.

I also noticed that it leaves a vmem file in the vm's directory, and also half of my 16gb of RAM is used after the crash.

Strangely enough, this doesn't happen with old OSes.

I don't see why VMware would care about what the disk is. 

Anything in the Player logs? There should be logs somewhere in C:\ProgramData\VMware
