I am trying to install ESXi 3.5 on DL380 G3 which has 2 x 3.06Ghz Xeon processor. I downloaded the HP version of ESX13.5i ISO and burned the image on a DVD. The server does not seem to recognize the boot image and am unable to proceed with installation. linux or windows boot via dvd works fine. This tells me nothing wrong with the hardware.
Has anybody run into this issue before? Please help
I think the iso on the vmware website is corrupt. After buring 5 DVD, I could not get any of them boot on my laptop or the DL. I tried installing it on a VM, i get Thin ESX installtion promot and keeps rebooting every 2 seconds. At one time, i even got an error message like corrupt file or something.
I could successfully install ESXi 4 on the VM. Unfortunately, i cannot install ESXi 4 on a DL390 G3. Can any one be kind enough to upload a working esxi 3.5 image to a ftp site. I will provide the ftp site details
It would not be legal for anyone to upload a piece of software from HP or VMware. Use the checksum to verify the file after you download it. I don't believe the ESXi 3.5 is a DVD. Pretty sure it is a CD. Try burning the file to a CD
How does it matter? DVD or CD. It is just a media with different capacities. Not sure if it is illegal, because we are not trading a free piece of software from a commerical interest.
I was worried about that. I got a call from my Daughter's school, had to pick her up from the nurse's office. On my way I was thinking about the licensing issues, I have not checked into it, but it sounds right.
