    TIP: for those affected by 'microcode levels not supported' pink screen at installation (cpu stepping mismatch, tlb bug, etc.)

      Here is the solution I have found:

       

      • at installation boot press Shift-o

      • type in the kernel advanced option: skipMicrocodeCompatCheck

      • to make it permanent after installation type at command line: esxcfg-advcfg -k TRUE skipmicrocodecompatcheck

       

      Works for me on Dell PE SC1435 with dual quad-core AMD Opteron 2350 and ESXi 4.0

       

       

      Enjoy!
