ESXi 6.0 has a fickle installer

This week I picked up a project that got put down last month, to install ESXi on one of my psuedo-servers. This particular machine runs an ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard with an Intel Xeon processor. Normally, installing ESXi shouldn’t be that hard, unless your hardware isn’t on the HCL, in which case it can be quite fickle. That’s why this was the third time I’ve run headlong at a brickwall.
