Hope that helps

I'm not clear on the goal here - Are you trying to make a Cisco UC server, and run it on VMWare, or do you have an old UC server and you're trying to make it run ESX because it's not otherwise being used?  (Or something else entirely)

If you're  trying to run a Cisco product on a cisco server, you probably just want to boot off of the Cisco install CD, and it will do the BIOS upgrades, install, and patching to a level supported by Cisco..

If you're trying to build a lab of Cisco stuff under VMWare, same goes for that, just create a new VM with no OS..  GIve it 2gigs of RAM and maybe 40-80g Hard drive, then boot the VM off of the Cisco CD.  It will detect that you're building under VMWare, and prompt you to make sure you're not going to use it for a production system, but it will at least work..  You wont be able to license it officially, but you'll have your default DLUs (in a CUCM environment)

If you're trying to install ESX on an old Cisco/IBM server, I'd be careful - The older ones (like I have some 7825i machines) dont have 64 bit or multi-core processors, so although they're decent machines for their job, they're not particularly useful for VMWare, and you'd better off starting over with something newer..

Can you elaborate on what you have, and what you're trying to accomplish?
