Install ESXi 4.1 U1 on a USB flash drive, it will recognise the existing datastore, browse the datastore add the VMs, by Right Click the VMX and Select Add to Inventory.

Wish I would have seen this solution before I was on the phone with VMWare.  7 hours later ended up reinstalling and setting up fresh install.

Reponsed as quick as I could, normally quicker than today, but a few issues with ESXi 5.0!
