Hoping for some suggestions or acknowledgment this isn't just us....

When imaging in a VMware Workstation environment (v7) via ZCM (latest and greatest), it is very! slow.

Has anyone else experienced this and found a resolution? I suspect non-optimal ethernet drivers but not sure what else to try/change. Any thoughts?

We use this environment almost exclusively for testing. Imaging a 'regular' system takes about 20 minutes, the same image via a VM takes over an hour.
