Rockstor on ESXi 6.0u2

Built a vm, centos 64 bit(template) in vCenter. 8 gigs of ram, 2 vCPU with 2 cores each. 20 Gig hdd for rockstor itself. Passthrough an intel hba controller (that works in unraid and freenas).

Problem is this:

Download ISO from website (as of today). Boot ISO on VM, get normal boot process, then it goes to load xorg or the gui to start the install and I just get a black screen. Tried 4/5 times, and it is currently has been sitting there for 20 minutes. I can see the mouse move around in the console, num key works but that’s it.


@Einstein.42 Welcome to Rockstor.

Have you tried selecting the “Troubleshooting” menu option on the first install screen then the:

"Install Rockstor in basic braphics mode"


Hope that helps.
