  1. how did you convert your Workstation version to ESXi? we have succesfully manaeged to get 10.7.x working on VMware Workstation, but still unable to get Booted on ESXi 5.0
  2. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    We would like to get, a version of Mac OS X running on our ESXi 5.0 host servers, we currently have many Mini Macs, but because of overhead of management, and the fact that they are very stealable, they are currently locked in the datacentre, and access is provided by VNC. We would much rather, have virtual machine versions running on ESXi 5.0, and the fact we have real hardware, are "comfortable with the breach of license" at present. We have Dell Poweredge 2950 and R710s, with the unlocked patch applied, but still fails to install. We have a Snow Leopard DMG, which we have converted to ISO, this works perfect, and boots/installs on VMware Workstation 8.0 (with the unlocker patch - thanks). Apple Mac OS X 10.6 (64 bit) has been selected as the VM Template. Processors in Physical Servers are Intel Xeon L5335 and X5560. Plenty of RAM, Plenty of hard disk storage. But when booting the ISO, I get the grey screen, and spinning wheel, which I believe from googling is a non-starter! If I select EFI Internal Shell (unsupported options)... fs0: \usr\standalone\i386\boot -v I guess, the VM is booting from the cdrom, until.... ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSRData - _CST evaluation failed I'm not sure if the above is correct and preventing installation? I've also tried ‘boot -v npci=0×2000′ Any ideas, would be very welcome, thanks (and great unlock!) I've also converted my DMG using TransMac (not sure if this works) to a 16GB USB flash drive, and connected to the VM, at BOOT, the Boot Manager detects the USB because I have USB in the list, but it does not boot from USB. Maybe the DMG conversion to USB was incorrect? Ideas....I do have macs at my disposal, but have failed to create a dmg to usb boot disk.
