ESXi4 Update 2 Getting to unsupported

I am trying to enable SSH on my new ESXI 4 box (free version) When I go to Alt-F1 I type unsupported and nothing happens I type root password nothing happens.

What am I missing here? Any ideas?

Thanks much

Jeff

Hello.

After typing unsupported and hitting Enter, are you even prompted for the password?

Good Luck!

Try hitting escape several times before typing unsupported.

Hit enter first, ensure that no caps lock on. and start type "unsupported" then enter.
