VMware ESXi 4.1 Problem - Hangs During Reboot at "Initializing Scheduler"

Help Offered from the Forum:

Cisco is aware of this problem and has been working with VMware to address this issue - as this issue has also been seen on other vendor's servers.
Additionally, it only seems to be affecting platforms running ESXi.

On the Cisco side, this issue is being tracked via CSCtj19224 - ESXi stuck at Initializing Scheduler - (CCO Account Required to view details)

The workaround is to disable legacy USB within the BIOS.

Thank you to Clint Pearson for the lead on this one!
