I am having a problem with an ESXi test machine.
As this one is not productive at all but used for testing, I still would like to get it running again.
Intel Pentium G620
8 GB RAM
4GB USB Flash drive for Hypervisor
1TB local storage
Turned everything off in the BIOS which isn't needed (USB 3, SATA 3, LPT and RS232).
NX is turned on, VT is working.
Okay, so what's happening: refer to the picture attached, it shows the error (could not start pcpu 1)
What I've done: installed it, worked with it for a few days, installed some VMs (Debian, W2k8 R2), tested it. Worked flawlessly.
I've moved it from the location where I installed it and placed it one room away, next to the switch. Plugged in power and LAN, booted, pink/purple screen
I can't find anything on the internet referring to that specific error which leads me to success.
Does anyone have an idea?
Edit: Happens while "loading scheduler" appears on screen
didn't find that option in my BIOS/UEFI, but resetting it to defaults and changing the settings I made (SATA3/USB3/LPT/RS232 off, NX on, same as before) helped.
Strange, but it works
I had the same problem 2 days ago.
After cut off （or cut down---sorry ，I am very poor standard of English ）the line of monitor、mouse、keyboard................It means using console port to operate the Server..
The problem is solved
