Hi Muhammed?

First of all, what do you mean by is not "showing nothing"?

When you added the vmware ESXi iso image, did you remember to map this image?

What boot order do you have configured? Make sure you include the CD ROM on you boot oder (see below)

Are you using a PCI or Mezz raid controller for this installation?  The onboard controller is not supported by vMware ESXi

RAID Controller Considerations

Have you created a Raid volume?

If none of these actions resolved the issue please provide a screenshot of the kvm and small detail description on how are you mounting this image.

ESXi 5.5 is not yet supported on UCS-C220 M3

In addition, you need to download the cisco custom image for ESXi. For example:

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpuf

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpuf

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpuf

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpuf

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpuf

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso

ESXi-5.1.0-1065491-custom-Cisco-5.1.1.1.iso#sthash.PbG2Gwe9.dpu

Hi Zaira, 

Hi Zaira, 

Your post answered my question on which version of ESXi I need to use. I am wondering how I can get the license of this ESXi? Is this free or do I need to purchase the license from VMWare or from Cisco?

Thanks,

Alex
