Problems installing ESXi 4 on Acer m464 - Failed to load lvmdriver


I have a spare Acer m464 that I am trying to install ESXi 4 on to use for testing purposes. During the installation process the message "Failed to load lvmdriver" is displayed on the screen. I have read in previous discussions that this often means that the NIC driver cannot be loaded and many people have been able to resolve this by installing a supported Intel or Broadcom NIC however I have now installed an Intel Pro 1000 MT PCI card and disabled the internal NIC and still get the same message.

Has anyone had any success installing ESXi 4 on Acer M464 hardware or does anyone have any clue as to how I could get this to work?

I am aware that this product is not included on the VMWare HCL however it would be nice to get this to work.

The hardware profile is as follows:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz)



Intel Pro 1000 MT NIC

Nvidia NForce NIC (Internal, disabled)

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7050

Ram: 4GB
