installing ESXi in Vmware fusion

I am trying to install ESXi in Vmware fusion, but I keep getting the error displayed in the screenshot.

In the settings I reserved 4GB RAM for the ESXi. I am not sure why it is saying it needs more than 2GB of memory.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Try "Virtual Machine > Settings >  Memory". I don't have my iMac available but I think thats where it is.

You need to ensure that you have set aside 4Gb for the VM.

Also, look at this link. It talks about building a custom VM with VM Fusion:

Not reserved in the fusion host settings?
