BIOS 1 No Boot Device: No bootable media - Assert

Hello, I'm getting this message on ESXi 6.0.0:

pastedImage_0.png

As you can see the server is a Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650. I installed ESXi on the m.2 dirves of the Think System configured on a RAID 1 array.

The server is up and running and it has virtual machines on it running just fine.

I tried to search the error message on Google but it's hard to find information relevant to my case. If you need more info to help determine the cause please let me know .

Hi guys,

I have the same issue as you on SR650 host

Have 4 of them all running the same FW versions on all devices and all of them have M.2 mirror KIT installed.

3 of them run with all health status green OK and one has that BIOS1 No Boot device  issue

What was your solution for that as i have all FW version running on the same revision. was there a specific solution to your problem?

Thx for the reply

Hi,

Just an update to give the solution to others if they have a similar issue.

As stupid as it sounds the issue was fixed with unplugging the server from the power. Letting it discharge for 60 sec and plugging it back in. This is the result of firmware upgrades that are still in the cache and need to have a clean reset and discharge of memory.

That cleared my issue and now health is running all OK
