I am currently trying to resolve an issue where one of the hosts is unable to recognize the SD card (FlexFlash) thats inserted and install EXSI 6.7U3 on it. I acquired 2 of the Cisco UCS C420 M4 servers, one is able to fully boot via the SD card fine and I have installed EXSI 6.7U3 on it with no issues, the other server is showing FlexFlash enabled and the settings are a complete mirror of the other server but I am unable to boot or detect the SD card on the EXSI 6.7U3 installer.
The SD card did work a month back and was running EXSI 6.7 but after the server was used for some SSD / HD testing it no longer boots. It does show up as a boot option during boot selection.
My first thought would be to do a format of the SD Card. Yes, you shouldn't need to for your hardware situation but stuff happens. You should be able to do this in UCSM (first choice), or you can do it via the ESXi installer recovery console.
This should work (note, the vmhba33 may actually be vmhba32 depending on your specific config):

While this same information is already scattered around the internet, I wanted to present this in a format that is hopefully easily usable by someone that is not powershell savvy, and needs a quick way to track down duplicate MACs.
