Basically, you've not got enough resources (CPU and Memory) available in your cluster, to allow you to power on this VM, you can relax/change the configuration, and overcome this error.

If you have enabled "Admission Control" in VMware HA settings on the cluster, you are bound to receive the error which you have attached. Admission control makes sure that sufficient resources are available on the cluster to power on VMs.

The solution is to disable and reenable back the HA. My supervisor said that, after installing the VM using ISO mounted on storage in HA server 1 and the just installed VM was in server 1. After finishing instllation, the server rebooted and stay at HA server 2. That's why the just installed server cant find the ISO mounted as a cd and cant boot. I dont know whether what i explain is correct or not because i didnt fully understand what my supervisor said. :-D
