trying to install VMware ESX 3.5 on HP DL380
Posted on 2008-11-01
I bought a used HP DL380 G3 from ebay just for to install and learn VMWare ESX 3.5. Now I am getting a strange problem. I created RAID 5 using inbuilt RAID utility and when I tried to boot it from CD it doesnt recognize the OS. But when I tried to install 2003 Server with bootable CD - it worked great. So I thought may be its just a Cd so I burnt a new copy and same problem so made another copy from ISO image but no luck.
Is there any specific hardware configuration for to install ESX on HP DL380????????
The Hardware config is like this:
HP DL380 G3
4 GB RAM
6 x 36.6 GB HDD.
rest is standard config...
