      Hi all!

       

       

      After my first installation of ESX 4.0.0 build-164009 on a HP Proliant BL680c G5 (2CPUs - 40GB Mem), I get the usual screen with the HTTP host address and the Alt-F1 and Alt-F11 stuff, but at the bottom, in red, I get the following error :

       

       

      TSC: 1246869 cpu0:0)Init: 461: The Execute Disable/No Execute CPU feature is not enabled for this machine.

       

       

      I suspect I need to change this setting somewhere in the BIOS but I can find it. This BL was originally setup with W2k3-32-bit which was pushed from an Altiris console; as believe the PSP usually "optimize" some settings depending on the O/S to be installed.

       

       

      Any ideas
