Update to esxi 4 from 3.5 - "Unsupported boot disk: The boot device layout on the host does not support upgrade."

Hi!

I want to update my esx 3.5 to the version 4.0

I have find this link http://technodrone.blogspot.com/2009/05/esx3i-to-esx4i-update.html but when the"host compatibility check" run I received this error:

"ERROR: Unsupported boot disk" The boot device layout on the host does not support upgrade.

My configuration is this:

VMWARE SERVER 3i 3.5.0 BUILD-199239

INTEL S5000PAL

INTEL XEON CPU E5450 3.00 GHZ

16 GB RAM

Now I plan to reinstall from beginning.

It is possible to import in Esxi 4.0 the configuration backup of Esxi 3.5 and then the VM?

I have created a backup with VMWARE VI REMOTE CLI.

Regards, David
