ESXi 510 Server won't boot anymore

I'm getting:
error loading /state.tgz fatal error: 6 (buffer too small)

This happened after my lab computer with my workstation installation hosting my ESXi 510 system/cluster with vCenter and all was abruptly powered off. I have two hosts in this lab, one came back up, the other one gives the error message shown above when booting.

Suggestions?

state.tgz file is corrupted.

try a restart, if it does not boot.

re-install the OS, if you are using USB/SD card, replace.
