Hello,

I try to install an ESXi 3.5 Update 2 and after the Message "VMware Kernel loaded successfully", I get no further message and the installation seems to be hung up.
When I press "Alt + F12" I get this message as a warning:

cpu0:1024 WARNING: NetCoalesce: 1440: invalid NET_COALESCE_HDLR_P

does anybody knows some advice / solution?

well... fact is, that's a vmware esx-server. So I install the ESXi into a guest-vm of the VMware Vi ESX 3.5 Update 2

Hi,
 :D you will not be able to do that. Because Vmware VI is a hypervisor.

I don't believe that the emulated hardware is hypervisor compatible.  You should check the hardware compatability lists.

Hi

what you are trying to do is trying to run a OS which needs access directly to the hardware which ESX would not make it possible.

i was able to run ESX3i as a VM on VMware workstation. And run VMs inside it. Never tried that on a ESX server.

Very nice. Then I will try it out on Vmware Server thx ;)
The ESXi-Setup searches the Host-Machine for Hardware-Access? Ok....
well, thx again to all =)

i think you will run out of luck on vmware server. Try to do this on vmware workstation. you need to edit the vmx file before you power up the VM.

It looks like your cpu does not have the virtualization extensions.

check the HCL and working hardware for esx
