Hey all, Brand new to Nutanix. My company is switching over to it from using Vmware so i decided to add it to my homelab and give it a test run however I am encountering some issues during the install.
After looking around it sounds like Nutanix 5.18 Found here ( https://next.nutanix.com/discussion-forum-14/download-community-edition-5-18-38417 ) Includes the AHV Hypervisor which can be installed on bare metal.
I’m installing it on a Dell R610. I attempted to check the compatibility of my hardware but it seems like that link may have been moved

So I moved on from that and and attempted to do an install. The 5.18 package was downloaded and added to a bootable flash drive using the recommended Passmark software. The machine boots off the drive and goes straight into a kernal panic before evening asking for install credentials. The I don’t seem to have a way to add images here but the panic gives some details

I did some reading and found some similar errors if you try doing an install with raid controllers enabled. So I went through and disabled the internal raid controller and and turned off my perc raid controller through its bios. I would like to use this eventually but it currently hooks to a Dell MD500 storage array thats frankly too hot and costly for my uses at the moment.
Any suggestions on what I’m missing here? Thanks much for the assist.
