Lisecons reacted to a post in a topic: HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO fo VMware
While reading trough some post I got the impression that installing Mountain Lion on ESX 5.1 would not be as straight forward as installing it on a regular mac. I originally came here to find out to install Mountain Lion on my Dell Poweredge 2900 server I keep at home for hobby and research purposes. After reading some posts I decided to update my esxi 5.0 box to 5.1 and afterwards install unlocker 1.10 (you’re the man DONK!). This all went without a hitch. I subsequently and eagerly attached my Mountain Lion DMG image and started installing. Since I was warned that using an image would not work I was waiting for something to go wrong. It did not. The install went perfectly and, after a few reboots, I am confident enough to say is working without problems. So just to let you all know installing and using Mountain Lion on a ESXi 5.1 box works. And as some have commented already it even works faster (suspend/restore) than before. Thank you all for the valuable information you are all sharing on this forum. Keep it going.
