Just saw this post. Very nice. Wish i would have read this 2-weeks ago. Anyway, I would like to know what you did to get the bare-metal ESXi to work with your AMD Ryzen 1700.
MSi B450-A-PRO motherboard, AMD Ryzen 1700 processor and 32 G RAM. I have downloaded the ESXi free and tried 6.7.0 U2 ISO image and 6.5.0 U2 ISO image and both give me the same error saying, "no network adapters installed or no driver could be found." Did you experience this issue when installing ESXi as a bare-metal on the AMD Ryzen configurations?
Hi, I'm a little late on the response, so I guess you got this figured out already.
The MB you have has a Realtek GLAN chip, that is not nativelly supported on ESXi. You have to either find third party drivers for it (Installing Realtek Driver on ESXi 6.7 - Network Guy ), or you can buy an Intel NIC that should work for you most of the time right out of the box.
