I am trying to install the IA64 .iso of Debian 7.3 on a HP G8 with ESXi 5.5 - every time the install starts the system hangs and then 30 seconds later returns a multicolored checkerboard screen with ascii characters all over.  Can't get past this, was able to fall back to the i386 without problems, but still would like to get the 64 bit working

IA 64 stands for Intel Itanium, it is different than x86-64. Do you mean x86-64?

What type of processor do you have?

intel Xeon E5 - I naturally assumed the IA-64 was intel Architecture 64 bit - so is the i386 download a 32 or 64 bit version ?

32bit.

My previous post has a link to a x86-64 iso.
