Check you boot order if is using the proper controller.

If everything ok, most of the times it needs a ESXi reinstall.

You could try to check the FAT with a Live CD. But honestly this will take too much effort and a reinstall is always faster.

When reinstalling, just be aware of the option to delete all datastores(leave this option unselected)

Hope this helps
