new esxi on usb results in panic

Hi all,

i ve been trying to run esxi from usb on a dell poweredge 2950. I have followed these instructions:

http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/Boot%203i%20from%20USB%20flash%20drive.html

I have downloaded the iso (110271 ) which has the time bomb patch in it. When booting it says:

Kernel: vmkernel.gz bootUUID=ec....
Loading vmkernel.gz
Module: binmod.tgz
Loading binmod.tgz
PANIC: Error while reading file: -3, binmod.tgz
boot:

Any ideas?

Dave
