    S2600-CP2 vmware ESXi 5.5 hangs on ACPI initialization -- Boot loop

    MyCroWave

      Hi all,

       

      I recently upgraded the firmware of a working S2600CP2 server running VMWare ESXi 5.5 build 1474528 and VMWare now gets stuck on the initialization of ACPI.  After about a minute or two of being stuck on the initialization of ACPI, the server reboots as if the reset button was pushed on the front of the server, basically resulting in a boot-loop.

       

      System BIOS  - 02.02.0002

        ME Firmware  - 02.01.07.328

        BMC Firmware - 01.20 r5446

        FRUSDR       - 1.10
