I tried to install ESXi 4.0 to get familiar with it, but while running the installation routine, I got this error message:
booting: mbi=0x00100d8, entry = 0x00100212
There the system hangs
Configuration of my test system: Dell Precision 650, 2x XEON 2,8GHz, 2GB RAM, 72GB SCSI, NVIDIA Quadro FX1000,...
I already ran a BIOS update without any success.
- What does the error message mean?
- Is it possible to run ESXi 4.0 with this machine at all? (or an older version)
Is the 64 bit requirement new to 4.0 ESXi?
I have an old 32 desktop (celeron even) that I've been using as a 3.5i test platform for some time. It's not a racecar, but it works fine for a few small VM's. This weekend I decided to upgrade to 4.0, and got the dreaded "booting: mbi=0xYYYYYYY" at install.
