ML370 G4 high cpu usage VMware ESX

We just prepared 2 identical ML370 G4 servers and installed VMware ESX 2.5.1 (build 13057).
One works fine (running idle) the other is using 53% CPU.

No virtual machines installed yet, just VMware ESX, all configuration issues are identical on both servers (BIOS settings etc.).I updated the BIOS on the slow server, no result. It seems to start with booting the vmkernel. I can't see any clues in the logfiles.

I used the smartstart cd to check the hardware, no errors found. I am a bit lost at this point.

Any suggestion is appreciated.
