  • ESXi implementation

    Hi,

    I have two hard disks which are not implemented with ESXi.
    However, each time I boot the server (HP Proliant DL120 G7), it boots the ESXi software.

    I checked the boot sequence in the computer, and its sequence is :
    -CD
    -Hard disk
    -Floppy
    -USB

    Also, SD card slot is still sealed and not used.
    Network cables are also not attached to the server. So what could be causing the server to boot with ESXi?

    Does the server have a CD in the drawer?

    Any OS on the HD? Set it to first boot device to check.

    Remove the SD cards from the slot and try again. On our Dell systems with SD cards installed they boot to ESXi but we specifically state on the order form that we want it.

    Remove any USB devices that may be attached.

      There is no CD in the CDROM, the SD card as I said, is not in use. It is closed in the aluminium enclosure of the server.
      Neither is there any USB device attached to the server.

      How do we change the boot order for the ESXi software? Since the normal change of the boot order (pressed F9 to enter setup) did not work ?

        So has someone installed ESXi on the server? ESXi does not just appear on servers for no reason. It has to be installed by someone.

        Have you tried to remove the SD cards and test without them installed?
