im hitesh and working in india as system administrator and wanted to learn virtualization and therfore i decided to install esxi 3.5 server on my workstation.
i have following configuration of PC and using *vmware workstation 6.5* to install ESXi 3.5 update 2 but i get stuck / hang on the screen where it shows " Vmkernel loaded successfully" and no response from the pc.
configuration is as follows.
CPU -- Quard core Q8400
Ram-- DDR2 4 gb
HDD --SATA Seagate
if more details are needed then i can provide. Kindly help me in learning it.
Sorry forgot something.
Create a new virtual machine choose custom advanced.
Choose operatingsystem Other Linux 64bit
Then choose the lsilogic scsi kontroller.
Then choose the appropriet memory and disk settings.
remove the virtual machine from favorite list.
Edit the vmx file and add line: monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = "true"
Start the virtual machine and boot from the .iso file.
Thanks to all for your reply
these all steps i have already done, but no luck. And also when i start the Virtual Machine i tells me that your hardware is not capable of hardware virtualization, what is that.
And after getting messege that your hardware is not compatible for running hardware virtualization , i click OK and then it starts loading ISO file and get hang / stuck at the message " VMkernel loaded succesfully"
and then nothing happens.
can u post the configuration of ur vmx file...

Your CPU is reporting that it is not VT-capable. You are probably suffering from Intel erratum AV69 (see http://download.intel.com/design/processor/specupdt/318727.pdf). The fix for this issue is a BIOS upgrade. You should contact your system manufacturer to see if a new BIOS is available.
