    Default Snow Leopard Server On VMWare ESXi (Need Help)
    Does anyone know how to install Snow Leopard Server on VMWare ESXi 4.0? I have the retail disk (10.6.3) and a valid license. I also have the ESXi server running on Xeon processor (I forget which one) I have tried "the Googles" and I couldn't find anything on it. Thanks

    I don't think it's possible. If it is I'd love to know how.

    Only works on Xserve hardware as ESXi looks for a certain field that is populated in the host configuration. Don't think anyone has found a way of faking it yet.

    I'd love to have a go at it!
