the virtual machine will be started without virtual NUMA and instead it will use Uniform Memory Access with interleaved memory access.
Additionally, you will want to utilize something like the VMware OS Optimization Tool—I call it the vOOT. Tools like this will look for services such as "WLAN Autoconfig" and other default startup items in server (and desktop) OSes and optimize (read: disable) them for you, so you can run as streamlined a configuration as possible!
