Cannot install ESX 6.5 with an error "Logs are stored on non-persistent storage"

I'm trying to re-install ESX 6.5 from scratch on my Dell R630 service, but I'm getting this error during installation.
Can someone let me know how can I proceed and fix this?

This is quite normal for ESXi which is installed in embedded mode, e.g. SD card or USB flash drive ?

is it being installed on flash storage ?

You need to change the location, see my EE Article

Hey Andrew, thanks for checking this. I'm installing the ESX on an internal SSD card. I was able to do it before, I just cant remember how i did it.
Also I saw your KB but it looks like the ESX is already setup there. What I'm trying to do here is to reformat the server by reinstalling ESX from scratch.

Any idea how to get rid of that message?
