    talsofer Novice

      hey guys, my first post in the community.

      im sorry in advance for my english, its ok but not great.

      im studying to be vcp right now

      and i want to set up a lab at home to practice, but for some reason i cannot power on any vms in my system.

      ill start with my setup

      my pc:


      win10 pro

      intel i5 8600k

      32gb hyperx ram

      z370 hd3p

      my main disk is samsung 840 evo 250GB

      and i have another hdd barracuda 2TB


      i installed an ESXi host inside vmware workstation 14

      gave him 16 gb of ram

      4 procecores with 1 core each (total of 4 cores)

      and around 300 gb of thin provision disk space(on the ssd)

      the esxi run when i power it on, gave it a static ip and all

      logged in through host client and whenever i creat a vm and try to power it on nothing happends, it get stuck on 0%

      i dont know what to do, i read almost every KB outhere nothing helps..

      i even formatted my computer and installed everything fresh..

      or what logs should i provide..thanks in advance guys! please help i dont want to fail this course just because i cannot run esxi at home
