ESXi7 and Asrock Rack C2750D4i board

Hi all,

I have an Asrock Rack C2750D4i board with 32 GB mem and a connection to QNAP NAS working for many years @ ESXi 6.0  up to 6.5U3  -> ESXi free versions.

I disconnected the QNAP NAS, I removed the Boot HDD, Installed a New HDD and tried to install ESXi 7.0b ( 16324942 )

During installation PSOD -> error Could not start pcpu 1; no response to kick

I know according VMware HW guide this board is not tested but this combo is a whitebox configuration.

Question: What can I tweak in BIOS or in CD to have this board up and running @ ESXi 7 ??

thanks

I also tested ESXi6.7.0 RB 14320388  -> same error 😞

What has been change in ESXi between 6.5 and ( 6.7 & 7.0 ) why this fantastic board is not working anymore?
