Windows Exp Score Glitch?

I installed Windows 7 on my home made mac on vmware and found somthing interesting. If you install Windows 7 in VMware you get a HDD score of 6.1 and it got me wondering why? I am using a old IDE 80GB drive. It made me laugh. But why does it give that score?

Why shouldn't it give you that score?

Its a old ide drive. The highest I should get from that drive should be 5.2.

Odd, the highest HDD WEI score I've seen is 5.9. Only a SSD gets more. The VPC has its own BIOS, maybe that has something to do with it. Dunno if VMware does or not.

It's because the HDD in a VM is a virtual drive not a mechanical drive so it's very similar to having an SSD.
