    esx65 scripted install error "install --firstdisk specified but no suitable disk was found"

      Manual install to usb drive is successful. Scripted fails with above error.

       

      Followed instructions from William Lam's site (https://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2017/02/no-suitable-disk-was-found-when-upgrading-to-esxi-6-5-on-usb.html ) and others, but appending  'preferVmklinux=TRUE' to the kernelopt line in boot.cfg hasnt resolved issue.

       

      boot.cfg:

      kernelopt=netdevice=vmnic0 bootproto=dhcp ks=https://10.0.0.1/kickstart/ks65.cfg preferVmklinux=TRUE

       

      ks65.cfg:

      install --firstdisk=USB --overwritevmfs

       

      Any hints?

       

      Thanks,
