Guest compatibility on VMware 6.7

Last Modified: 2019-11-28
Hi, I am upgrading our VMware cluster from 6.0 to 6.7. I encountered an issue with a VM guest with a very old OS (Open Suse 11.4).
VM runs fine on 6.0 hosts, but is not working on hosts already upgraded to 6.7.
I don't think is an issue with virtualized hard disk (LSI, Scsi controller, IDE controller, I tried all); system "hangs" immediately after kernel loading.
I checked this URL:


and I would like to understand if there is no chance at all.
Any suggestion?

Thank you very much
