I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong… but at the same time there’s little that can go wrong on my procedure.
I’ve installed a Centos 8 right this morning on ESXi 6.5 (standalone latest patch level - July 2021), no issue it just worked.
After that I downloaded Rocky (tried both both Minimal and DVD with same result). After the VM is created and the DVD image virtually connected, the POST just failes as no booting devices are found. I ahve never had to do this but I also tried to enter the BIOS and set the CDROM as first booting device, still no luck. I have also tried setting up the VM config in multiple ways like Centos7/RHEL7/Other Linux x64 but nothing seems to allow me to boot from the ISO image.
Is this a known issue? Or am I perhaps supposed to do things differently?
