R2208WTTYSR - ESXi Fatal Error 10

Hi,

Problem: When starting ESXI, the error message "Fatal Error: 10" occurs and the VmWare does not start.

I found this with VmWare and have this also in the BIOS set up:

"To workaround this issue the BIOS setup option to allocate the MMIO space required by adapters in the memory space above 4GB."

But the problem remains.

Configuration:

VmWare ESXI 6.5.0a

R2208WTTYSR

RMS3CC080

2x SSDs RAID 1

4x SAS HDD RAID 5

1x SAS HDD Spare

The RAID module finds the SSD and the HDDs. The ESXi can also be installed on the SSDs with RAID 1.

Does anyone have an idea why the ESXi does not want to start?

Many thanks in advance.

Jens

Hi Cesar,

Thank you for your answer.

 

I got it fixed right now. It was probably due to the SSDs.

 

I had SSDs installed that were not certified. I changed the SSDs against HDDs and now ESXi starts without problems.

 

I have made multiple tests and everything is fine.

Thanks

Jens

Hello Jn53HO ,

I am glad to hear you were able to solve the issue by replacing the SSD's by certified ones.

I hope this solution helps others solve the same type of issue in the future.
