Virtual Machine Disk Controller Configuration – Virtual Reality

Two settings can be tuned: Thu, Dec 6 Exchange Hi again Vladan, was hoping you could answer my second question as well. This note I got out of the KB itself but what does that mean? The OS already installed the drivers with the previous step. Feel free to share this on social media if it is worth sharing.
