ESXi on Dell 6410


Just a quick post to confirm that I was successfully able to install and run ESXi 4.1 on my a Dell 6410 with an i5 processors and 4GB of RAM.  Not much to talk about other than it works.  The install took all of 15 minutes and no special adjustments.  ESXi seems to generally like Dell PC class hardware.  So far I’ve been able to run ESXi on my Dell XPS 420 and now a 6410.  I actually use my XPS 420 as a production host on my home network.  It runs a Windows Home Server, a Windows 7 image from an older machine I had and an Windows 7 machine I use for jump box into my network.
