Symptom:
Attempting to upgrade or install ESXi 5.5 from the Cisco OEM ISO on a B230 M2 / B250 M2.

...
Loading /tools.t00
Loading /scsi_fni.v00
Loading /xorg.v00
Loading /imgdb.tgz
Loading /imgpayld.tgz
Relocating modules and starting up the kernel. . .

*reboot and start over with no apparent error message*

Conditions:
Upgrade or installation of ESXi 5.5 on B230 M2 / B250 M2.
Only seen when no local disks are present and attempting to boot to or install to SAN.
