I have a small Esxi install at home with 6.5.0 release build 8294253 installed. Booting it up has never been a problem until now when it stops when it says "vmkapi_v2_1_0_0_vmkernel_shim loaded successfully." I have tried the following below
I have tried updating to 6.5.0 u1 and u2 with no luck
I haven't made any hardware changes - it has worked for months
I tried updating the firmware on the motherboard with no luck
Last thing I haven't tried is a full reinstall of VMware Esxi but I was trying to preserve my 3 VMs I have built on it.
Any help is appreciated
where the ESXI is installed? USB?
what is the hardware you are using
