HPE Proliant Blade server BL460C Gen8 failure trunning vmware-esxi 5.5.0

Hello,

I have a blade server on which the Esxi 5.5 is running but it displays a Pink Screen Of Death.

I have been lokking for support from VMware but they told me to find technical support from HP.

I am posting my issue here looking for anyone who has had the same issue so that he can help to resolve.

 

I tried many times to install ISO from vmware and from HP Customized ones but no succeess.

During Installation the system shows "No Ethernet Adaptor found" I also tried to customize the ISO with Ethernet Adapter drives "b2net" and much more but no success.

 

Currently during installation I am missing nfs4client file thus the "Ethernet Drive" can`t be found.

 

Could you please advise if any one here has had the same issue?

Is there any technical support can be provided by HP Support specifically for my issue.How to find local HP Representatives for such support?

 

Please help me with my blade server.

Hi, 

From the attached scrren shot I would say you have something wrong with your partition as it can not locate store for your ESXi. Check you array settings and try to wipe the data from it. If it not works I would try as well to install ESXi to SD card or USB stick just for test. 

 

Let me know about the progress. 

 

Regards,
