ESXi Installation on NUC6i7KYK fails with "Fatal error: 10 (Out of resources)"

When you try to install VMware ESXi 6.0 on the latest Skull Canyon Intel NUC (NUC6i7KYK), the installation fails with one of the following error messages:

Error loading /tools.t00
Compressed MD5: 39916ab4eb3b835daec309b235fcbc3b
Decompressed MD5: 000000000000000000000000000000
Fatal error: 10 (Out of resources)

Error loading /tools.t00

Decompressed MD5: 000000000000000000000000000000
Fatal error: 15 (Not found)

This problem is caused by the Thunderbolt Controller, which is a new component in the NUC6i7KYK, and therefore only the Skull Canyon NUC is affected. The problem can be solved by temporarily disabling the Thunderbolt controller during installation.

nginxLast sunday I've migrated from Apache to nginx. I've used Apache as Webserver since I can remember but in the last month it has become slower and slower. The blog is running on a dedicated server and delivers about 1 million pages and 8 million requests in total per month (including bots, crawlers and spiders). This huge load was too much for my apache and it started to delay the delivery of pages.

After some weeks of background testing, I switched the DNS to the new host yesterday at about 17:00. If you've encountered any issues, please do not hestitate to contact me.

As you can see from the graph, the total page load time has been significantly reduced, and while the first day is almost up, I haven't seen any issues.
