I have the same issue on 6.5.0 and Windows Server 2019.
I'm having the same problem and I have used the latest build on the ISO from Microsoft and installed both Windows Server 2019 Standard and Datacenter with the same result.
"Windows created a temporary paging file..."
VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 8294253 and SW_DVD9_Win_Server_STD_CORE_2019_64Bit_English_DC_STD_MLF_X21-96581.ISO
You folks may want to open an SR with VMware on this one since Server 2019 was just released and also support for that was just qualified to 6.5+. This may be a known issue, but raising an SR helps push it through.

I ended up opening a Premier support ticket with Microsoft and they confirmed that it is a known bug with Server 2019. They don't have an ETA for a hotfix yet but I will reply back when I know more.
I actually got it working, using a SATA controller disk for the pagefile.
System disk can run anything as long as the PF disk is SATA.
Looks like the issue is resolved in the november/december CU for Windows Server 2019.
Installed and cannot reproduce anymore.
The release notes for the Nov/Dec CU dont mention anything about this issue. Do you have a specific KB Number?
Tried it with latest updates installed but the problem stays the same.
The December cumulative update did not fix the issue for me either.
Looks like the problem is back for me as well...
Latest patch installed today and it's back.
Have been running fine with December CU.
Hello Dramdin, Any news on this?
We're having the same issue described in this thread.
I've installed the January 2019 patches but the problem persists, so it doesn't appear to be resolved with the latest fixes.
The preview of the February updates is out on Wednesday, so I'll try again then and report back.
I've carried out some further testing and tried the below patch levels and had the issue in all cases using the PVSCSI controller
Vanilla 2019 install from X21-96581 ISO
Above with 2018-11 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2019 for x64-based Systems (KB4467708)
Above with 2018-11 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2019 for x64-based Systems (KB4469342)
I also spooled up a Windows 10 - 1809 VM, and have the same issue, so at least it appears to be broken on both server and desktop branches of the 1809 build.
I've checked for preview patches and it doesn't look like these exist for 2016 and above.
