New bullseye install on ESXi , can’t boot

Post by Scoobdriver »

Hey all ,
I have been successfully running dietpi as an esxi VM on buster. I today wanted to create a new dietpi VM , so downloaded the VMware bullseye vmdk , and used vmdk tools (as I did with the previous version )
Unfortunately it doesn’t boot with a message initramfs: Waiting for UUID xxxxx to appear.

Not sure if this is a driver issue etc.
anybody managed to install on esxi ?

I was able to use the pc image iso to build , but not sure the implications of this.
