Scientific experiment: Sierra OS vs. Ubuntu OS in VmPlayer

Gear: Acer laptop, 750 gig Crucial SSD, 2 video cards (Intel & Nvidia Geforce), 12 gig memory, CPU Intel core i7. Both Vm’s were set to 4 gig memory & 4 processors.
Did some Crystal Disk Mark tests. Average reads are 510 MB/s & write 480 MB/s. Enabled Crucial SSD momentum cache feature. New read is 3231 MB/s & write 2577 MB/s. Either way, Ubuntu VM boot up, beats Sierra VM boot up. But it’s still fast for both. Blink & it’s done.

Do you know why it shows “Thread 0 crashed”? I tried both this version and El Capitan version but it’s the same.

Is there a way to configure this for dual monitors? When I attempt to click “Cycle Multiple Monitors” under the view tab, I get an error that reads:

This virtual machine cannot use multiple monitors for the following reasons:

– VMware Workstation does not support the multiple monitors feature in macOS 10.12 guests.

Please check the user manual for help on fixing these issues.

I am running the latest version of Workstation Pro on Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) in administrative mode.

Thank you for the awesome tutorial!!! It works great otherwise!
