Dear Gurus

we are facing some issue

" the system has found a problem on your machine and cant continue

vmware esxi requires the exceute disable/no execute cpu feature to be enable"

but after reboot the machine work fine

Check the BIOS settings of your HP server and activate the "No-Execute Memory protection". Have a look at this blog entry http://blog.vmpros.nl/2012/09/17/vmware-esxi-requires-the-execute-disableno-execute-cpu-feature-to-be-enabled/

ESXi 5.1 is *NOT* compatible with your Server, according to the HCL. Download and use ESXi 5.0.

Download the HP OEM version from HP, and check your servers is on the HCL.

Check the VMware HCL (Hardware Compatibility Lists) here

If you have an HP Server, download the HP version of ESXi 5.0 from the link in my last post.
