comment ESXi Cannot boot to ramdisk: boot image is corrupted
The server went down several additional times and it got to the point where it would no longer boot correctly. I replaced the mother board and all seems good now.

Marked this as correct answer since it seems it was a ram issue even if memtest didn't show defect.

comment ESXi Cannot boot to ramdisk: boot image is corrupted
Memtest showed no errors through 2.4 passes. Tried booting, everything went great... still have a sinking sense of doom. The issue I had earlier where it wouldn't post was back in May 2012. It's been running great since then until yesterday but I've now moved from 2 2GB sticks of ECC ram to 16GB of normal RAM. So I guess I'm just going to see how things go for the next few days.

For you comment on rotating the sticks, I'm currently using all four slots. Is there any point in rotating the sticks while still using all 4 slots?

Memtest has been running all night (16gb of ram). First pass found no errors.

Thank you for the response. A few months back, there were power issus at the colo facility and then the server wouldn't post. Moving the ram resolved the problem so I'm guessing it is a motherboard issue. Is it safe to turn off and turn on the system a couple times after I move the ram?

comment Installed wildcard Certification not showing up in the IIS6 Available Certificates box
It seems that ultimately, my problem was that I never properly associated the Certificate with the Private Key because I somehow chose the wrong option on step 26. The final solution was to remove the existing certificate, re-key the certificate from GoDaddy and then follow the steps properly to install it.
