How to create a VMware vSphere virtual machine utilizing all available features

Step 11: Select the driver

A virtual machine has a driver associated with its disk access. vSphere gives four options for this function, with the new VMware Paravirtual driver being again purpose-built for virtual machines. vSphere now supports the VMware Paravirtual driver to be used on boot volumes for selected operating systems (including most current Windows versions). The Paravirtual driver requires some additional consideration for being made bootable, see VMware KB 1010398.
