    AMD FX 8150 nested virtual ESXi black screens on power up.

      Background:

      -I have followed all guildelines and suggestions when running ESXi as a virtual machine, and then running 64-bit operating systems in it.

      -SVM is turned on in the bios.

      -As you can see here (http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/GPU120AMDRVICPUsHyperVWin8.aspx) the AMD FX 8150 (Zambezi) supports AMD-V and RVI.

       

      -For some reason Windows 7 64-bit powers on perfectly fine, but when powering on Windows Server 2008 R2 and CentOS 64-bit, all I get is a black screen.

       

      It would be great if someone could help me or atleast explain to me why Windows 7 64-bit works but the other two don't.

       

      Thanks.
