Hey all, I have tested the PuTTY scripting commands in prodium´s (Jan 14, 2020) post for modding the vmx.v00 within an ESXi 7.0.0 b15843807 hypervisor host and it WORKS. - take the modded bios versions from: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/vmware-workstation-15-5-6-slp-slic-bios-efi-mod.64693/ - use the slic 2.5 versions - should be backwards compatible - rename the files according to the originals and follow exactly the commands in prodium´s post... Tested with DELL-OEM Win7 x64 in ESXi7 with normal BIOS as well as with EFI. Both VM´s were immediately activated after installation. Note: the 'rm -R' command can also be used as 'rm -Rf' to force the removing of the directories without user intervention Please note also that the ESXi7 hypervisor needs a hard disk that is bigger than 120GB to have a 'datastore1' volume.
