I had a frozen VM on an ESXi 4.1 machine.
I attempted to kill it using the usual methods, but nothing seemed to work, so I rebooted the host machine fully.
Now when the host machine (not the VM!) boots, all I see is ...
SYSLINUX 3.63 0x4afa90e9 EBIOS Copyright (c) 1994-2008 H. Peter Anvin
for maybe 30 seconds or so, and then a blinking cursor comes up, and nothing seems to happen from there.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start? The server hardware seems correct.
