Esxi 3.5 U3 can't get cdrom to connect.
I'm trying to create a new vm on my esxi 3.5 u3 box I just actually installed U3 as a fresh install on the server.
I've created the vm given it some hard drive space.
I've then set it to boot into the bios the first time and changed the boot order to cd rom first.
Then I connect the cd rom to a local iso file and select save and exit in the bios which then reboots the machine with the cd connected to the iso file.
This is where it hangs and eventually disconnects the cd rom.
Now at this stage if I select reboot the vm it hangs at 95% and I have to reboot the whole server to restore order.
It's running on a Poweredge 840 server.
