ESXi 6.0 U3 installation stuck on enter root password page

This post was originally published on this site

HI while installing custom made ESXi 6.0 image into HP Proliant DL380 Gen 10 server, I am stuck on enter root password page.


My logical disk is show at remote section and not on local. I can still choose remote location and pressing enter takes me to set root password.


This is where I am stuck, I try to enter password to root section but as soon as I hit seven characters it says password mismatch, even though I have not enter password on confirm password section.

Pressing enter key dose not seem to work here but still can press back (F9) and ESC key.


Not sure what the problem is.


The custom image consist of ESXi 6.0.0 offline bundle and contains this driver VIB package from HP website found below:
