Hello,

I launched VmWare ESXi 5.5 as a Virtual Machine in Proxmox, using this Marksei manual.

Everything is OK, but under ESXi I can launch only 32 bit virtual machines. 64 bit Virtual Machines doesn't work.

Can anybody sugest something?

You can't run virtual machines inside virtual machines.. Since your ESXi virtual machines does not have Intel VT etc.

You can run nested esx in kvm if your cpu support it.
I have an intel cpu that support ept and nested, and made a /etc/modprobe.d/kvm.conf file with:
options kvm ignore_msrs=1
options kvm_intel nested=y ept=y
options kvm_intel emulate_invalid_guest_state=0

You also have to edit your esx in the file /etc/vmware/config
vhv.allow = "TRUE"

Why do you not import your machines? Have it done so often. This is working really good :)

Are you able to run 64 bit operating system uder your ESXi?
