    ESXI 6.5U2 - Windows 10 only boots the first time

    Blasdeaki Lurker

      Hi all,

       

      I have a Windows 10 virtual machine under ESXi 6.5U2 that works fine when booted for the first time. But once i turn it off, it doesn't boot into desktop anymore unless i reboot the host. Apparently, it doesn't matter if it's the first VM to be turned on (if i turn on a FreeNAS VM first, the W10 behaviour is the same, it turns on the first time, but then refuses to boot into desktop until the host is rebooted).

       

      When i try to boot W10 for the 2nd time, i don't get any error messages, The "Recent tasks" tab on the host shows "Power On VM" as "Completed succesfully", but after a few seconds it turns off and does not go into W10 desktop.

       

      Can anybody please help? Thanks in advance!
