    Getting vmkctl.HostCtlException trying to install ESXi 4.1 on HP Z600

    AshMohammad Lurker

      I am trying to install ESXi 4.1 on a HP Z600 desktop but failed at the very beginning with error

       

      "vmkctl.HostCtlException Unable to load module /usr/lib/vmware/vkmod/vmfs3: Failure".

       

      The error does not give any specifics as to whether there is an issue with the exiting hardware. We can enter the support mode with "root" access. But not sure how to troubleshoot from that point on.

       

      We see it has created a root partition with 1.3 GB and no other partitions.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks.

      Ash.
