Nevermind, I solved it. It was as simple as adding another network adapter in the vSphere client. Might be useful info for anybody migrating a VM from Workstation to ESXi. I'm going to backup my image, remove the primary/default Network adapter from the list (and keep the second one I added) and hope for the best. Thank you for this wonderful patch!
Nice work! I think you should check your link for the 469512 patch; I get a zero length file when I download from http://www.filedropper.com/unlock-esxi500-469512_1 however I was able to get what I needed in a ZIP file from http://www.filedropper.com/unlock-esxi500-469512 instead. I used VMware converter to transform a Lion VM Workstation guest to a VMware Infrastructure format (compatible with ESXi 5.0) ... uploaded the VM, and it starts just fine with your patch. The problem I am currently facing is that there is no network support. I see an "Ethernet" entry in System > Network but it says either the network cable is unplugged or the other side is disconnected. DHCP or manual configuration does not work. When I run "Network Utility" I don't even see that ethernet adapter, just two serial adapters. Anybody have any tips on how to get network connectivity to this Lion guest? Thank you for you hard work!
