I get a message when loading the ESXi installer, right after it initially loads modules, that "multiboot could not setup the video subsystem". Then, the screen goes blank. Usually, here the install screen is supposed to turn to a yellow background, while it is loading the ESXi installer.
I have to install ESXi via IPMI as this is a cloud provider. I dont have physical access to the machine to plug in a monitor, as some Googling has suggested.
Here is a screenshot of the error message:
The motherboard in this server is a SuperMicro X10DRU-i+, if that helps. Also encountered this issue with a Supermicro PIO-618U-TR4T+-ST031 motherboard.
