    is there an optimized setting for virtualizing in workstations 8?
    i'm virtualizing OSX 10.7.4 and it lags, i've already assigned it 2Gb of ram out of my 8 Gbs.
    and when i go full screen, it's center in the middle with lots of black space around. people say i need to install vmware tools, but it keeps giving me a can't download error.

    im not familiar with MAC..
    but with Windows..
    what i do for better performance:
    - have a separate HD specifically for VMs
    - format that HD with NTFS, and largest sector size
    - leave the recommended RAM settings alone.. i know it's tempting to increase .. but it actually slows down your VM.
    - definitely install VMware Tools.. it's like night & day.. the performance hit w/out Tools is tremendous.
    - of course.. disable/uninstall all unnecessary software/services/graphics/themes/etc ..
