Excellent !!!!......
great thanks to you.......!

I have IBM blade HS22 ( 7870) and i didnt find any option to Disable the Legecy USB support. But i have changed the USB port from USB 2.0 to USB 1.1. ( Screenshot is attached )

After the changes, i can see the ESXI loaded successfully ( Seems to be faster for booting & uEFI loading)
The issue is now resolved and ESXi loaded successfully. Thanks agin for the valuable support

Please let me know what is the dependancy for ESXi to USB support or Legecy support bcz even i have another 180 ESXi with USB 2.0 support and till date didnt experienced any booting issue such like this. Please let me know. Thanks Again

This was an issue on the Cisco UCS Servers and a firmware update fixed it.  May want to try and upgrade the firmware on the blade and hopefully that resolves the issue.

When the issue occured, the teh uEFI vers is 1.12, hence i updated all the firmware and uEFI version to 1.15 but issue was not resolved.
