Default Server 2008R2 install issues

Trying to install this on a VM and it keeps getting stuck at this point. Also running into this issue when trying to start existing virtuals at the Windows animated logo screen. Anyone run across this issue before?

This is with ESXi 5 running on a whitebox machine. I've had no problems running the VMs in the past using Workstation using NFS on a NAS for all storage. I will try digging through the logs and see if I can find anything. Was hoping someone had this issue before, but it will probably take a lot of digging to figure out.

so on this ESXi installation you have not gotten any VMs to successfully run?
hmm, it could be an issue of how you set up the storage pool?

Yes. Nothing has successfully booted or finished installing. Might be a problem with the storage pool, though I can see all of the files that VMWare has written.

if you can, i would try to reconfigure the storage pool, start over from scratch on that.

I created a new storage pool using iSCSI and that works. For some reason, VMWare and my NAS doesn't like NFS which is a bummer.


Seems to be issue for others and requires updating to the newest OS for my NAS. Not crazy about updating since it can always cause issues.
