I have an HP Proliant G8 server. Dual 12 core AMD processors. It has 94 GB of ram and 16TB of local storage. I would like to use this in our test lab. I have attempted to install ESXi 6.5 update 2 (HPE build) to in installed internal thumb drive, using a external flash drive and a USB connected DVD drive.
I have rebuilt the flash drive twice, once using Yumi and once using Rufus pointing to the VMWare ISO file.
I have reburned the ISO image twice using ImaBurn.
In every case, the server boots without any errors, but indicates no bootable media available.
I have altered the boot device from internal to external USB and made sure it was enabled.
I have also altered the boot sequence to CDRom when trying it from the DVD player.
Never had this issue before. Anyone have any idea.
