VM Ware ESX server 2.5 installation


We have been trying to install Vm Ware ESX server on a HP Proliant ML 370 G3 tower model server and is facing a peculiar problem.

While booting the ESX server from CD rom on to a preloaded MS Win 2K hardware. The screen displays:
"loading vmlin*..."
"loading init...."

Then it turns blank. The monitor power trips and the keyboard freezes(no power)

VGA card model is : RAGE XL PCI
NIC is: HP NC7781 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

We have an update Bios firmware too.
