Welcome to the Community,
you need to select a supported virtual network adapter for the ESXi VM (see e.g. https://medium.com/@zedr/setting-up-the-vsphere-hypervisor-on-virtualbox-78d401bcd581).
Don't worry about the 60-days evaluation period, it starts with the (successful) installation.
Thank you so much for helping installation in Virtual Box. It did work and the steps shown there are pretty easy to understand.
While I need to install in bare metal hard drive too. I will post the details soon. Kindly guide me through
Thank a lot again.
Thank you for such a kind help again.
Well, I have another situation too, installing the ESXi in bare metal hard drive.
I have a PC wherein I tried to install it directly on Hard disk and this time it's not VirtualBox the same error popped up. So, I again ran the command.
lspci -v | grep "Class 0200" -B 1
The output now it says is.
Network Controller Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Class 0200: 10ec:8168
Please take a look at https://vibsdepot.v-front.de/wiki/index.php/Welcome to see how to create a custom installation image, with injected drivers for unsupported network adapters ( in this case it's most likely https://vibsdepot.v-front.de/wiki/index.php/Net55-r8168).
Lots of Gratitude for Solving my errors!
Well the network adapter error is now gone but When I try to install the entire operating system it gets installed successfully.
After Installation is complete I remove the USB and re-start it. Then after it displays the message No Operating system Found.
The BIOS Settings are:
1. Legacy Mode
2. First Priority HDD.
1. Installed with Legacy Mode.
1. MBR Record also entire Hard drive is empty with single partition in it.
Please don't mind me asking, but are you sure that you've selected the HDD as the installation target (not the USB installation device itself)?
I had definitely selected the HDD as the installation disk. with the yellow mark on it.
