VM Server 2019 essential installing failed

This post was originally published on this site

Hey guys,


need some help with my esxi. Cant get installed a Windows Server 2019 essentials.


Host version: ESXi-6.5.0-4564106-standard (VMware, Inc.)

Host: Supermicro

Modell: X10DRi (self assembled)

This Error pops up after clicking on “install now”

translated: a media driver required by the computer is missing. This can be a DvD, USB or hard disk driver.


So I think this happends cause of HDDs. Here are the SCSI – Adapter informations.

We have and raid installed. MegaRAID SAS 9361-4i.

So I’m not sure how I can install a HDD driver behind the Raidsystem in this case.


Tried serveral things.

Try to install a 2019 standard – same result.

Try to change guest system to several others – same result

Try to create a OVF Windows 2019 template – wont start


VMWare compatibility Guide says that ESXi 6.0 and above is working with Server2019.


Overseen anything?

Can anyone help me with this annoying issue.. :-/
