Hi, I have physical hosts installed ESX, 4.1.0, 260247 (Model : N20-B6620-1) and I tried install nested ESXi, 5.1.0 1065491.
 
Install successful, then I tried to setup new VM on the nested ESXi 5.1, when I power up, I hit the error
 
"An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM WinXP.
Running VMware ESX in a virtual machine requires the outer virtual machine to be configured for running a VMware ESX guest operating system. You cannot power on a virtual machine until the outer virtual machine is reconfigured."
 
How can I configure to allow the nested ESXi work.

Check this EE solution http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_26892558.html. Normally it's not supported in ESXi only in Workstation and Fusion - see this KB article http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1030283.
