Install VmWare to anchient server

This post was originally published on this site

I have ancient server based to two XEON processor and X6DVA-4G motherboard. But it has 12 GB memory, big RAID controller, good cooling system and working stable and fine.

My main problem, it working only on Linux (or any version of Windows), but not work in any version of VmWare.

Usually I load any Linux to this server with option acpi=off and any Linux working fine, windows chose correct options automatically.

How is possible to install to this server VmWare? How to force VmWare working as Linux with mode acpi=off ?1
