Oups! I posted it by mistake before I was done ?:| .
There is No-Execute Memory Protection parameter, which is disabled, under the Processor Options (under Advanced Options) in the BIOS. I enabled it and the error is gone. SO I don't need help anymore, but in case it helps someone else...:D
I would also enable Intel-VT if it is not already within your BIOS. It is always very good to verify your BIOS settings are correct for ESX. HP should have a whitepaper or documentation with the proper settings.
So far enable for Intel based HP systems my list includes:
If you CAN select an OS type select Windows NOT Linux.

Hello and thank you Texiwill!
Intel VT was already enabled indeed but there is no parameters to choose the O/S in the BIOS that I could find.
And for the sake of more complete information, one other parameter to set in the BIOS prior to a VMware installation would also be the time in UTC, not local. I don't use Linux or Unix myself but I would guess that is probably a standard.
I haven't found any HP documentation but I can rarely find anything quickly on HP's site ;-).
Again thank you!
I just upgrade my first HP DL380 G5 and get the same result.
You save me the time to find it in all these menu items
