thanks for the reference; I've already seen this page, but it doesn't help me with the problem.
Furthermore, since it refers to an older version of the nuc, it might not apply in all aspects.
- "old": nuc7i7 bnh... ("Kaby Lake - Baby Canyon")
- "new": nuc7i7 dnhe ("Products formerly Dawson Canyon")
Still, I am looking for a deeper output from the booting process during installation - is that possible?
ensure you are using UEFI mode in bios
Also, are you trying to dual boot it, if not
it could be due to newer NVME device driver, check vendor website if there is vib available for that if yes, you need to pass the driver as a kernel parameter before installing.
Have same issue with NUC7i7DHNE and Esxi 6.7, hangs on "initialization storage" but the problem is boot in legacy mode. Put boot in UEFI mode and it works with 6.7 esx default image. (esx 6.0 doesn't work) Hope it helps
yeah - that did the trick (uefi boot mode). thanks for helping!
somehow missed to check the bios correctly
