I created a VM on my Mac using Fusion and exported it to an OVA.
I then tried to deploy that to my ESXi 6.5 server....
It uploaded fine but when I power it ON, it seems to be unable to boot up .. and goes into boot from network mode....
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong here?
it sounds like it isn't finding a bootable device.
When first powering it on, try hitting ESC w/in the console. This should give you a boot menu. See if you can choose the hard drive.
ok found the problem - when I looked in the 'General' settings tab I noticed the OS type was set to 32-bit .. no idea why ... setting it back to 64-bit OS X fixed the problem
