    ESXi 4.1 PXELINUX install

    Has anyone got this working?

    I'm trying to install esxi 4.1 over the network?

    DHCP / TFTPd / apache2 running on SUSE 12.2

    PXE boots but complains the image is corrupt

    i have made the image.tgz as per instructions

    and the image.tgz does have the bz2 inside it named correctly for the esxi version

    ERROR -->

    Installation operation failed!

    The installation operation has encountered a fatal error:

    Unable to find system image to install. This is due to the image not being mounted correctly or the CD-ROM not being supported.

    definately a bug in the 4.1 installer, as the iso (update 2 or update 3) doesn't work with with memdisk either. 4.0 does tho.
