I was wondering if there are any requirements with regards to installing Nutanix on a CISCO C series hardware managed by an FI switch.

I have enough CPU resources, Memory and storage.

Ive set the local disk on a raid1 

after the error on screenshot1, I went and removed all old partion on this raid (Old ESXi Installation) and even initialized and recreated the raid virtual drive

Looks like you installer is corrupt. Have you checks the hash against the download? 

And best results are created when you create a bootable usb installer with Rufus under windows. 

 

good day and thanks for reaching out.

 

checked the file hash and this is correct.

 

as for the rufus bootable USB installed, I’m currently the cisco remote console CIMC and not a physical media to install this Nutanix solution

I would give it a try writing the image to USB with Rufus.   I regularly see similar issues installing CE from iDRAC/CIMC/iLO/IPMI.  It’s not a very “light” image and often times we see these I/O errors.
