ESXi 4 bootup freezes at "Loading module HID"

I have ESXi 4.0.0 Build 171294 installed on a USB flash drive. When I boot up using this image it eventually freezes. The text on the screen at the time is "Loading module HID".

My hardware is as follows:

HP Pavilion NY464AAR-ABA p6130y

AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-core

8GB RAM

750GB SATA HD

I do have the "VT" extensions turned on in the bios.

Thanks

Problem resolved.

I had the computer hooked up to a 2 port KVM that uses a USB mouse and Keyboard. Once I attached the mouse and keyboard directly it booted up just fine.

KVM is an inexpensive Belkin model.
