I recently decided to virtualize my computers here at home using VMware’s ESXi.

  1. Hi Tom,

    I also run in the same problem with a HP XW4200, and fixed this with the same patch few weeks ago :P

  3. Hi Tom,

    I have been looking for a solution to this problem on a ML115 G5 for a while now. Can you please explain how I go about integrating this patch with ESXi. Thanks in advance

  4. Chris, I ended up using these instructions to create a USB stick which were in a different post from the same blog mentioned above.

    My laptop is running Fedora right now and I wasn’t able to figure out how to alter the contents of an ISO file on Linux. Couldn’t find a freeware program to do it on Windows either. On FreeBSD you can mount the ISO with `mdconfig` and alter the contents.

  5. @tmclaugh.

    In linux, just mount the iso (man mount) and modify contents. Then unmount.

  6. IIRC when I mounted the .iso as a loop type it was read only.
