    I suspect you're under-resourced.

    Review your disk IOPS and memory utilisation

        Your problem will be your disk subsystem.

        What are you using for a disk??

            Ok, so you are running VMware Workstation, with an ESXi guest. Within the ESXi guest you are running another VM right?
            And WullieB meant your physical disk.

                So lets get this straight:
                Laptop OS (what is it) runs VMWare Workstation
                ESXI as a VM inside VMWare
                XP as a VM inside ESXI

                tbh, I'm amazed it works at all!

                  Without giving specs of your disk, I don't think your laptop can handle it.

                    The fastest spinning disk for a laptop is 7200rpm. No way will this be good enough to do what you are wanting to do.

                    SSD i reckon would be the way to go with this. However this will get expensive.

                        I know, but a laptop can have SSD as well

                            hence the reason i said that the fastest spinning disk was 7200rpm.

                            i have a nice fast SSD in my macbook with 16gb of ram
