ESXi install 6.7u2 not formatting in MBR

I am trying to install ESXi on an older HP DL380p Gen 8 for a Lab environment this is not production.

The DL380p does not have UEFi boot options so will require an MBR schema. So when installing I hit shift-o and entered runweasel formatwithmbr. But when it installs the flash drive comes out as GPT.

Thanks.

Hi chrisbucket,

formatwithmbr option is not supported ESXi 6.7 onwards.

Thank you! This was driving me crazy. Apparently it is required on older non supported  HP hardware.
