VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.1 U1 testing on VMware Workstation 7.1.4

I’ve eventually got round to proving this combination does work, strangely, VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.0 works correctly on VMware Workstation 6.5.3, the installation of VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.1 U1 installs on VMware Workstation 6.5.3 but it hangs at the Text Mode console screen and receives no keyboard input.

But VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.1 U1 does install succsessfully on VMware Workstation 7.1.4, and if you select the Easy Installation Method, it detects the ESX Server 4.0 CDROM or ISO, and selects ESX Server 4.0 as the Virtual Machine type.

An example above of how a VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) 4.1 U1 Server should be setup for networking with team network interfaces for Management Interface, VMkernel (NFS and iSCSI traffic), Virtual Machines Network, and Fault Logging Tolerence network (if required).

Ideal for Lab testing VMware ESX 4.1 U1 for VCP Learning, using VMware Workstation 7.1.4.
