Possible to install VMware ESXi on PowerEdge 750?
Posted on 2008-10-20
Hi, I have a Dell PowerEdge 750 that I want to use as an extra testing server. I planned on installing VMware ESXi on it and tried however I can't because this particular server isn't on the HCL. I've done some reading and I think the issue may be that I'm using SATA drives on this server. I have BIOS vA06 installed and I don't think I can "reconfigure the SATA controller as IDE"...not completely sure what this means.
So, I'd really love to run ESXi on this server and I know it's powerful enough. Is there any way to install ESXi on this server and bypass the error I get which says the VMware cannot find supported hardware?
