Trying to pxe install ESXi6.7 [VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.7.0-8169922.x86_64.iso] via cobbler. But the kernel seems not loading and stuck. Below attached the screenshot of it.

The target system boots and get the IP address from DHCP server and path where ESXi kernel reside. But installation not happening.

enter image description here

The path where ESXi installer files reside:

[root@localhost ~]# cd /var/lib/tftpboot/images/ESXI6.7-x86_64/
