it's not officially supported by VMware.

you can try but before you do, go into your BIOS and make sure that you have Intel-VT (virtualisation technology) enabled.

you may find that you will have compatability issues with the motherboard, hard disk controller, and network interfaces.

Hi

For VMware 4.0 maybe, for 4.1 I don't think so.

And yes the main problem will be the motherboard(and inside controller etc.)

So you can try to install and see if it works.

But you need to have the Intel-VT enabled. If not, you will never install VMware on it. Even the machine is 64bit.

Why dont you get Workstation & then install ESX/vCenter within there & test?
