i've installed and configured esx 4.0 on an hp dl380 g5 which contains 2 intel xeon x5450 processors. when viewing the console there is a message in red at the bottom that states:
"tsc: 40343364 cpu0 :smileyshocked:) Init: 461: the execute disable/no execute cpu feature is not enabled for this machine" can anyone enlighten me as to what this means ??
also, when i try to install winsrvr 2008 x64 guest machine i get an error that states "attempting to load a 64bit application, however this cpu is not compatible with 64bit mode" i've verified through hp tech notes that the xeon 5450 is indeed 64bit compatible.
ive attached screen shots of the error messages. any insight would be greatly appreciate, thanks in advance.
Not off the top of my head. Are you talking about the BIOS for the host or the guest? It would appear that 64-bit is turned on, otherwise ESX 4.0 wouldn't work nor would x64 Windows.
