I tried to install it on a DL385 G6 with ESXi 4.1, but it doesn't mount the file system. I've burned several DVDs and used a USB pendrive too, but with all them I get the same error:
"Unable to mount the file system"
And then, I get a tty session. I don't know how to continue
I was able to get SPP to install by booting into ILo and mounting the ISO of SPP and choosing Interactive Mode and then selecting the bundle I wanted. Maybe this would work for you as well?

Well, I select "interactive mode", but whenis mounting the file systems, it's here when it ocurrs. The same with automatic mode. Now I'm trying with the previous version.
My servers have installed ESXi 4.1, and they are connected to a SAN by fibre channel. Maybe is it due to this configuration? Should I disconnect SAN link?
SAN has no effect. My environment is the same as yours except I'm running vsphere 5 Update 1

try to boot from an external USB DVD-ROM drive. I had the same issue with the built-in drive and this solution worked for me. Using a USB key may also work.
