Hi all,

I am new to vmware esxi and after a recent power outage the following PSOD screen is what comes up every time I start up.

See attachment.

I tried shift+r and there is no other hypervisor to roll back to. I tried shift+0 and I do not know what options to add to the boot up. I have searched and see I should run a file system check, but I'm not sure what command to use and I tried some linux commands, but they failed. I am also unsure what filesystem esxi runs on top of (VMFS? )

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
