    Hello Everybody,

    I have a Server on which I have several Virtual Machine running on VMWare ESX Server 3i version 3.5.0 … and all the machines on this server are running fine.

    But When I install ZeroShell on a virtual machine with a virtual disk (8gb) and when I reboot it or save a profile , it doesn’t reboot correctly , all i get is black screen with a blinking cursor … any ideas ? Thanks a lot for your answers !

    Try to run your VM by booting from the virtual CD rom using the .iso image. You can use the hard disc to store the profiles. Check if it has the same behavior.

    Sounds like a problem to write on the disk. If you insert a USB stick and share it from ESX to the host VM, will you then be able to write the profile on it?

    I’m afraid I can’t help you on that, as I don’t know much about ESX.

    ESXi does not support USB devices to be attached like the Server or Desktop versions do, so using a USB drive with VMWare is hard.

    The best way is to do all the testing under VMWare Desktop, then select a supported configuration (no USB for example) and then migrate to the ESX/ESXi server.

    I’m considering creating a test image with several virtual interfaces and then remove the ISO image. Then the user can just place the ISO in the directory and it will boot fine out of the box.

    I don’t quite understand what is VMWare Desktop and what you mean here. Could you please give me some details?
