Step 7. Dell BIOS, by default it would have UEFI Secure Boot enabled and VMware ESXi 5.1 will not boot with it. So disable Secure boot, and keep it to UEFI.
Step 8. Ensure virtualization is turned on in the processor settings
Step 9. Save the settings and exit BIOS and insert VMware ESXi 5.1 CD in the DVD drive.
Step 10. Follow all the prompts and they are quite easy to follow and intuitive.
In few minutes, VMware ESxi install will complete and ready. It does not complain of anything. VMWare ESXi 5.1 intaller is so much better and it automatically detected the on-bard NIC and was ready. Otherwise I was ready to add another NIC card if this fails. Earlier versions used to fail it finds hardware that it does not recognize. This was easy.
Next I plan to setup Cisco VPN with RV042G. I will write about it in my next blog.
