Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should be able to see this by creating a new vm with a small drive and booting the box (without an OS) and it should tell you at the POST screen for the system.

Our installation is 3.0.2 (build 61618, I believe) so You’ll want to ensure your version is the same before you take this to the bank. Our installation says the BIOS is Pheonix BiOS 4.0 Release 6.0 … VMWARE Version 245.

Does this give you what you are looking for?
