Which build number did you install? There is a known bug in ESXi U3 and UEFI mode.The workarounds are in the link below:

Hey Cujovmware,

I would recommend following the KB that has been referred but instead of changing the option to BIOS you can follow the second workaround which is using the ISO with ESXi 6.7 U2 and running the installation but preserving the image.

After you re-install the ESXi with the configurations you can upgrade to ESXi 6.7 U3 but including the patch mentioned in the KB.
