CUC 8.0.3 on VMWare ESXi 4.1

Hi there fellow Experts !!

I am deploying a new VM on ESXi 4.1 with CUC 8.0.3. The problem is, after all of the files have copied and the "grub" install runs, it gets all the way to the end where the "Application Post Install" runs it's scripts. There is a point in this portion of the installation that I get the error message -
"Estimated Time Exceeded. System will now halt."

I have read other people's comments on how they got around this by shutting down the VM when there is 1 second left on the countdown timer, then powering on the VM again and the installation finishes just fine. This might work for others however, I have had no luck with that procedure,

I'm hoping that some of you may have seen this before and can share what you may have done to get around this.

Thanks in advance.

I would try a more recent version of ESXi 5.x, e.g. 5.1 or 5.5.

I have had all of this setup and configured before, utilizing the same components (ESXi 4.1 and CUC 8.0.3). It all worked just fine but I had to blow it all away and basically start from scratch.

I have found great success with saving the Platform configuration until the end of the installation. At the beginning the CUC install asks you to provide information for the Platform itself. If you choose "Skip" it will prompt you that this information will be needed at the end. This is what I chose and the installation went much more smoothly.

If anybody has any questions regarding this procedure please let me know, I will be happy to assist.
