I am attempting to install VMware ESX 3.5 on a new server (Specs below) I get just past the first screen when I get this error:

usb.c new usb bus registered assigned bus number 1

I have been assured by the local VMware rep that my HW is compadible. I have attached a screenshot for a full screen shot. I appreciate any ideas anyone has.

All thats plugged in is a USB Keyboard and Mouse. I had previously installed VMWARE ESX 4.0 on the same server and had to roll back to 3.5 for other reasons but that version at least installed.

Looks normal to me. Are you sure it's an error?
If everything is OK, the next line is
"USB hub found"

There is no next line, it just stops there. Nothing you hit on the KB does anything, the only option is a reboot but then you just get back to the same point.
