You posted this in an area for v3.5, what version are you trying to install/use?

Have you checked the your hardware is compatible with whatever version you’re using?

now, I am using VMware ESXi 7.0.3 

sorry , I do not check my hardware. but I doubt an extract function prohibit the initializing..

I am referring an URL  which is relating with this root cause.

but when disabling legacy USB,  this hardware can not recognize wireless keyboard and CD/DVD external device for ESXi iso.
