ESXi 5.5 PSOD MCE (ASRock Z97 extreme6 + Intel Core i7 4790K)

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I got frequently PSOD on my ESXi 5.5. I upgraded the ASRock Z97 extreme6 BIOS and also upgraded the ESXi 5.5 to the latest (build 4722766). I also turned off the C-state, but still in vain. Every time i got the PSOD, I have no choice but to restart the server. Does anyone know what the problem is? What further actions should I do?

Thank you!

Hello

Cause

The cause of this issue is that the original ISO image used to perform the installation is corrupted or did not copy to CD/DVD/USB media correctly. 

Resolution

To resolve this issue:

  

  1. Download a new copy of the ESXi installation ISO from the VMware Downloads site.
  2. Perform the installation again

Hi Rajeev,

Thank you! However, it seems that these are two different questions. I have successfully installed the ESXi without any problems. The PSOD is sometimes happened.
