VMware ESX installation with VMware Workstation on Lenova T60 Notebook

>The major concern was that Lenova T60 notebook does not support VT enabled on BIOS. SO it was challenge to installed ESX on Lenova T60 Laptop.

This articles is just a SUDO document.

Here are the steps I have followed

1) I have created a dummy vmware esx machine incorporated with all the configuration files like .vmdk, vmx etc.

Note – Everybody know how to create VM in VMware workstation.

2)
Edit the “Virtual Machine setting” and click on “add” button to “add a hard disk”. Click on Next button to get
“Create a new virtual disk” and again clicked on “next” button to get “Virtual Disk type” IDE is selected.

Note – To avoid “”no valid devices available to create a file system

3) Edit the created esx’s vmx file and incorporated the following attributes

monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = “True”
Monitor_control.vt32 = “True”
ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”
Monitor_control.vt32 = “True”

4) Power on the esx virtual machine and it gets installed.


Note
– I know this is slow in boot process but the biggest challenge was to installed ESX on Lenova T60.

Something is better than nothing
