Mac mini auto restart on power failure...... easy but not on ESXi 5.x

Hi All

I think the macmini is the coolest option for vmware ESXi, but it has one major issue, the lack of auto power on on power failure

There is plenty of info on how to 'switch' this mode on via tools like setpci

I hope this can be addressed

any thoughts etc please let me know

Thanks

Hi

I am very pleased to confirm that the workaround offered by twuhabro does the trick and the start on power failure flag doesnt need to be reset every time.

Just set it once via USB/SD Card with OS-X installed and use the OS-X GUI to tick the box in system preferences..... simple

BRILLIANT !!! THANK YOU !!!

Have you tried using a Linux LiveCD and running the setpci commands? This would be an even easier solution than having to have OSX installed
