Issue with installing Windows Server 2019 on ESXi 6.0.0

This post was originally published on this site

Now that I’ve got my additional space in ESXi, I am trying to install Windows Server 2019, but I can’t get vsphere client to boot to my Server 2019 ISO. Just for troubleshooting, I setup a new VM, attached Windows Server 2012 ISO and booted right up.  I looked up requirements and 2019 is supported with ESXi 6.0.  The 2019 ISO is valid, since I’ve used it with Hyper-V.


I can only go up to Windows Server 2012 when selecting a version.  Any ideas why I can’t boot to Server 2019?
