    Failed to initialize additional processors during start up

    belphera Lurker

      I've been trying to get VM ESXi 4.1 to work on a dell 2950 server with no success. The first time I installed ESXi4.1 everything went through as planned. However, after a day the ESXi instance crashed and the debugger had the following message: Recursive panic on same CPU. After trying to reboot the machine, the server would fail each time during ESXi startup during the Initiating scheduler phase citing: Failed to initialize additional processors during startup.

       

      The bios are the latest bios and all the bios settings are set to factory default.

       

      Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do now?
