I think we have to start looking at

1. Building a new ESXi server.
2. Transferring the OLD VMs from the old server to the new server.

I can work with you to do this.

Andrew,

I am able to log in to the ESxi Server console through different computer, i am able to see all the virtual machines liosted in their, it was in the maintenace mode, so i took it off from the maintenace mode but i am still not able to power on the virtual machine. I do not want to build anohter ESXi server, I have extra dell power edge with Windows 2016 installed on it. Is there any way I can take this image onto that server?
Or can we see why is it not turning on?
