Vmware esxi doesnt load on client computer
Posted on 2009-04-22
I've downloaded the Vmware ESxi software and created a bootable CD and tried to boot my computer with this CD. The computer seems to be able to read the cd fine and tried to boot into Vmware Esxi however it then fails and i get lots of writting on screen and a purple background.
At the top it says Vmware ESX server 31 (release build - 153875)
x1402d64 [062b148] stack: 0x832adf, ect
waiting for debugger.....(world 1024)
debugger is listening on serial port....
press escape to enter local debugger
ive tried a few times but everytime i run into the same problem. The computer can boot from a windows XP cd fine.
The computer spec is:
1 x Sata hard drive (150 GB)
Pentium D 2.80GHZ
2 GB Ram
This computer is just for testing out vmware i know its not the ideal spec to run a virtual server.
has anyone else tried vmware esxi and had this kind of problem, any suggestions on how to resolve. I know someone who has it running on a computer of similar spec to mine to it should be possible unless the software doesnt like some of the hardware in the computer?.
