Hi

Im trying to install ubuntu server 9.10 64 bit on VM Ware ESXi

unfortunately im not getting very far - as i get the following message :-

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but has detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - Please use a kernal suitable for your CPU.

Where can i find a vmware ESXi compatible UBUNTU SERVER installer

Sounds as though your host has a 32bit processor so will only support quests who are also 32 bit OS's.

You need Ubuntu Server 32bit. Go here (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-server).

Click "Alternative Download Options" and then tick the "32-bit Version" radio dial and then "Begin Download".

Hi,

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 64 Bit just fine on ESXi 4 Update 1. Make sure that you install Update 1 of the ESXi hypervisor.
