ESXi 5.1 installation on MCS7816I5

Hello,

I need assistance on installing ESXi5.1 onto my MCS-7816-I5 server. I've tried booting from CD and USB but am only getting a blank screen. Has anyone acheived any success in installing ESXi onto the MCS server?

ESXi 5.1 installation on MCS7816I5

Have you confirmed the server specs are supported for ESXi?? and for that particular version???

I have several MCSs running ESXi 4.1, it's only for lab purposes and I had to review the HW support from ESXi

ESXi 5.1 installation on MCS7816I5

Hey Jaime,

Thanks for your response. I actually got it installed right after this. I had to configure the BIOS to get the ESXi disk to boot.

Enter BIOS > Systems Settings > Legacy Support, Set 'Force Legacy Video on Boot' = Disable.

Reboot and you should be able to see and install ESXi 5.1.
