SL 10.6.8 server (hosting my DeployStudio images)

On ESX 4.1 it was working fine

When moved to ESX5i (patched with latest unlocker) it starts but never finishes boot process (no KP, just hangs there)

 

Help appreciated

sebus,

I assume you were using Donks darwin.iso method for 4.1, which pre-loads code to allow OS X to boot, and does not use EFI which is required in the new unlocker method for ESXi 5. When we switched from Donks darwin.iso method to Albert's unlocker method in Workstation 7, Donk posted a vmx parameter update to allow OS X guestOS's created using his darwin.iso to work under Albert's Unlocker, I assume the situation is the same for ESX, I will have a dig and see if I can find the relevant post, in the meantime I have attached a working ESXi 5 guest Snow configuration file so you can compare and amend as required.

Cheers MSoK.
