The HP DL320 G2 Server is not listed on the Hardware Compatability Lists for any version of ESXi.

If your computer is not listed on the VMware HCL, it may still be possible to install and run VMware ESXi 5.1 on your laptop, desktop, or server. The HCL exists because the server vendor and VMware have certified and tested ESXi 5.1 will function correctly, on the servers listed on the HCL.

see my EE Article on how to install

HOW TO: Install and Configure VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1)

you might be able to install ESXi on your desktop PC, but it would replace the current OS, and you would need to use another PC to manage it.

Cisco Call Manager 8.6 - is this for Lab or Production?

You could use

VMware Player 5.0 Free Download [FREE]
http://www.vmware.com/go/downloadplayer/

VMware Workstation 9.0 (60 day trial, $199) [EVALUATION]
www.vmware.com/go/downloadworkstation

on your desktop PC.

The HP DL320 G2  has a 32 bit processor machine and 4GB of RAM. It has no Intel VT, it's not going to work with ESXi 4.x or 5.x (which requires a 64 bit processor).

To be honest with you the machine is scrap, my new smartphone is more powerful than that server!

Hi IanTh,

Thanks for your information.

The error show like that : The Device provided not write to.
May be it can't detect Harddisk RAID0,I only 1 harddisk but configed RAID0.
Can I disable RIAD0 or delete RAID0 then format to common harddisk let ESXi auto detec?  

What is v5? can I download it?

Yes. What are the requirements for Cisco Call Manager 8.6 in terms of memory and CPU?

@ianth is referring to ESXi 5.x, which is not compatible with your old server, it's too old, and not even 64 bit, and has no Intel VT. I'm afraid it's too old and for the scrap pile.

Unfortunately, your Intel processor is too slow.....you would need at least an Intel i3/i5/i7.

My smartphone is faster than your laptop!
