BL460c G7 ESXi Installation

Hello,

I have a big installation problem with new BL460c G7 on a client site.
I am unable to install ESXi. It stops very early with "Unable to load module /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod/vmfs3 ..."

It seems to be a problem with the NICs or the Smart not recognized. Do you have an idea ?

Thanks

That is the installation media I've been trying to use but the installation is not successful. I'm using 4.1_Dec_2010_ESXi_HD_USB_SD_Image_Installer_583772_009.iso, and am trying to install by mouniting that iso to the Blade over ILO3. How did you preform the installation?

Thanks

I have the same issue that the install fails after 3% or so. Did a resolution for this issue get resolved?
