    Error: Could not load multiboot modules: Already exists

      I have tried searching for this error and cannot find any other instance of this error online.

      When my computer is booting and starting up ESXi, I get the pink screen with the message: "Could not load multiboot modules: Already exists"


      This started after installing a used hard drive into my tower and getting it formatted and ready to be used as another datastore.

      I did not assign anything to the new datastore or use the new drive yet, when the drive started clicking.

      I shutdown my tower and removed the faulty drive and now I get this error message when I boot it up.


      I have a feeling this has to be easily fixed, I just don't know where to start as I'm still new to Vmware.

      Let me know if there's any info you need to help troubleshoot.


      VMware ESXi 5.5.0

      AMD FX-8350 Eight-core processor
