vmWare Guest OS not healthy - C_S_C ?

So you have a VM thats continually seems to reboot every 10 minutes, and it seems random , its not, its doing a BSOD with a CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION and its fixed like this:

This is caused because the CPUID masking is incorrectly exposed, but its easily fixed.

  1. Power down the virtual machine.
  2. Right-click the virtual machine.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Click the Options tab.
  5. Select CPUID Mask under Advanced.
  6. Click Advanced.
  7. Under the Register column, locate the edx register under Level 80000001.
  8. Paste this into the Value field:

    ----:0---:----:----:----:----:----:----
  9. Click OK.
  10. Click OK to close the virtual machine properties.
