    ESXi 4 install does not complete

    skillam Novice

       

      Hi Everyone,

       

       

      I'm attempting to install ESXi 4 however I'm running into some issues.

       

       

      I reach the initial boot loader screen and select the ESXi Installation option. From there, a series of files are loaded on a black screen with many ..... (periods) representing progress. Once this completes, I reach a black and yellow screen with a progress bar at the bottom. This appears to complete on the step: loading dvfilter successful (or something like this). At this point, the server reboots and the install progress begins again at the beginning. Am I missing something with this? Any help is most certainly appreciated.
