When you say "vmware 5," I guess you mean ESXi 5, on a dedicated server, bare-metal installation, right?  Or some other solution?

Did you go into BIOS and enable the virtualization tech, such as vt-x, and vt-d?  What kind of hardware is it, did you check for firmware updates and such?

After installing the guest, did you install vmware tools (or openvmtools?)
