Solved: Windows 2000 VM on ESXi 6.7 showing 100... |VMware Communities
So, it looks like the consensus is, where possible, use the uniprocessor HAL and a single vCPU with a single core, but if you really need it, switch to the multiprocessor HAL and stay unisocket with multicore. Multisocket seems to be a world of hurt if you have a problematic situation. The problem here is a lot of documentation is spread out and recommending uniprocessor, but what they really mean is single socket.

Storage Alignment and VMFS Block Sizes |VMware Communities
Note NTFS will hate you for using anything other than 4K for anything other than a dedicated partition for a database. Many backup systems expect 4K, and boot partition usually must be 4K, and NTFS native (deflate) compression (up to 64GB but really 40GB sized files) only works on 4K.
