Yep, running 6.4.0 in ESX right now. It's a bit complicated because you need to have to create the .boot file yourself. The default one doesn't contained the devb-btmm driver that is required by ESX.

6.4.0 is easier then 6.3.2, because the 6.3.2 devb-btmm driver doesn't auto detect the controller and you need to provide the ioport and irq.

Thanks for the info ... What doc is available for creating the .boot file for each version of the os?

Each version of the OS? The procedure is the same for each.

The command is 'mkifs'. Take a look to the documentation. Is simple. The build files are in /boot/build/*.build.
