Ok so this isn’t definite, but I have a suspicion that in the above configuraton, the presence of a Mac Fusion Drive on the host causes a long (two minutes of spinning dots) delay when starting a Windows 10 guest. This suspicion is based on the same VM opening much faster on a similar mac with a standard drive.
I don’t have a solution; this is just an observation.
So, my ancient copy of Leadtek’s Winfast PVR2 usually works fine, then one day it decides it’s going to split recordings at 1.99GB no matter what you ask it to do.
Reading some ancient forum posts, someone else mentioned that it will do this if it thinks it might be on a FAT16 (or FAT32?) drive. It isn’t in my case, but still it’s been known randomly to switch into this state of mind.
The solution is unknown, but switching to another physical drive seems to resolve it.
This is a fairly cheap unit at $129 – does the job but even on low it is quite loud compared to units such as the “Mi Air Purifier”. Had they given it a ‘quiet; setting it would be better in my opinion.
When I bought it there was zero information on the Internet about it, but now the manual has shown up at http://www.stirlingappliances.com.au/LiteratureRetrieve.aspx?ID=195680
Still no idea where to get replacement filters – but really there isn’t much complexity to this product and you can probably make your own.
Alternatives: Spotify Web Player loads then goes to a black page
Spotify Web Player black screen. Spotify web player black page.
I think this situation is caused if you attempt to use the Web Player from more than one device, or several times without using the app. The solution appears to be simply to open the Spotify app on your phone or PC, play one song, then try the web player again.

Edit: getting several comments that this didn’t work. Unfortunately I don’t own this laptop so I can test to see if this solution is still valid. It has worked for me twice. (April 2018 ish)
If you upgrade Windows 10 (presumably by using the media creation tool) you may find the WiFi no longer works. (14 inch laptop.)
