Purple screen of death. #PF Exception 14 in world 2097594
I've an old server withe a Intel S5500BC Mother board. I've migrated the VM's to a new server, but I want the old server as a Backup server. I has been running without any problem until now, with the ESXi 6.5 Release Build 5969303. I want the old server to be upgraded to same version as new server, so we can move VM's to it when we need to maintenance our new system. But if I'm trying to upgrade to anything newer than ESXi 6.5 Release Build 5969303. I'm getting a Purple Screen Of Death. I've updated both Bios and the raid controller FW to latest version. But still the same problem.
Is there anyone there can interpret this PSOD and tell me the exact problem and maybe a way to fix this issue?
I've seen someone with similar issue on the internet, but no answer.
This is the PSOD I'm getting when upgrading to version 6.7.U3b:
This version is running without problems.
On an old server, do you want to install the version of Esxi 6.7.U3b?
Have you checked the compatibility matrix?
Your Mother Board was already incompatible with version 6.5
The Hardware is Intel Mother board S5500BC, Intel Xeon CPU E5630 @ 2.53GHz And Raid controller is RS2BL040
I know it is not officiel supported... but is there not a way to make it work (Workaround), just as and backup, test and emergency solution ? It is not entened as a production environment.
No. As long as hardware not supported it should not worked and also there is no tricky way to do it.
Hope you understand.
