Can you explain this in a little more detail?

the system:
Server HP Proliant 350ML
5Gb RAM
4x146Gb SAS DISK in raid 5 + hot spare

OS Host:
windows 2008 Enterprise Edition x64
vmware GSX server 1.07

OS vm1:
windows 2008 standard edition x32

if the system boot normally vmware doesn't work (it doesn't run the driver of virtual network because is unsigned)

if i press the F8 at boot and select "skip unsigned drivers" vmware works fine

i don't find a solutions for unpress F8 at boot...

thanks

You should download VMware Server 2.0 and throw away the GSX (old and dead). VMware Server is free!

Re-install your OS, soumds like there are some underlying issues. Be sure to install without the Hypervisor in 2008.

Its an issue with 64-Bit version of Windows Server 2008.
Only 32-Bit versions of Windows Server 2003 and 2008 accept unsigned drivers.
