ESXi failed. Which media to use for restore?

Hello,

 

I ran into a problem with the ESXi host after power outage. The VM doesn't load and a pink screen appears with the following error:


NOT_IMPLEMENTED bora/vmkernel/core/bootModule.c:122

 

VMware have an article for it:

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2063837

and it basically says re-install.

 

My question is which media should I uso for the installation? ESXi version is 5.1.0 (Releasebuild-1065491 x86_64) and the server is with Virtualization foundation license:

Product: VMware vSphere 5 Foundation Licensed for 2 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)
License Key: JJ2AH-...
Expires: Never

 

On the download page of VMware website I see lots of different options:

Which one should I pick? Or is there any special distribution that needs to be used?

Hi Rath,

Thanks for the answer!

 

What I was wondering is which type should I use (Essential, Standard, Enterprise, etc.) and should I use a regular installation like the one you sent or the one that is labeled as "Cisco custom":
