here is my scenario: I have an Optiplix 755 tower. It has a dual core 64 bit processor and 5GB of ram. I have installed vmware esxi 4.0 on it. I have installed 2 intel 1000GT nics. ESXi install went just fine. I can see both Nics just fine. I have installed vmware vsphere client to administer this box. I have created a datastore and a vm. I now need to install the OS on the vm but i cannot get the console to connect to the dvd rom. Nor can i browse to it. The console screen just boots to a screen that shows "PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. Operating system not found." I have the BIOS set to boot from cd/dvd rom so i'm not sure what i may be doing wrong.
