what CPU do you exactly have? And what's the exact error?
it's not mentioned on the HCL by the way: http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/

If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful".
this is the output of IBM Parts:
2.8GHz/533MHz (512KB) upgrade with Xeon processor
This have i found somewhere in the net:
Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz Prozessor
L2 Advanced Transfer Cache - 512 KB
Streaming SIMD Extensions 2, Hyper-Threading-Technologie
The output of [http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/] is nothing if you select XEON
Is this correct?
BTW we have an other IBM Box: x336 also 4GRAM but a 3.06 XEON and it works fine
sorry for the table, i couldn´t delete ist
Sounds like the Prestiona Xeon, which is 32 bit. You need a 64-bit CPU for ESX 4.0.
I am almost certain that the CPU you have is a 32 bit (only) Pentium 4 "Netburst".
You need a 64 bit CPU for esx 4.0.
thanks for your answers. The whole Machine is 64 bit architekture. so i can´t believe the only the processor is 32bit.
i call IBM, looking forward what to do.
Thank you all
The processors are 32bit with memory extensions. They are able to access a larger memory space but are not 64. The hardware may be 64bit and it may support replacing the current processors with 64bit versions but ???
I am using esxi 3.5 on my x345 with no problems , they are not 64bit cpu so you cant use esxi 4 .
